Greek Afterlife


Last spring, the riches-filled tomb of a wealthy Bronze Age warrior was found in an olive grove in Pylos, Greece, by a University of Cincinnati archaeology team headed by Jack Davis and Sharon R. Stocker. The discovery has the potential for historical ramifications. “This guy was likely a player in the creation of Europe’s first civilization: the Mycenaean Civilization,” says Davis. And a big fan of beads, apparently.
