Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
In the study of Mycenaean archaeology, the major monuments have been intensively and extensively studied, while others less impressive and monumental are often left unpublished, although well over two thousand of them are known. These largely neglected Mycenaean burials are the subject of this volume, where they are referred to as 'simple graves'. The scope of these simple graves is wide and the work extends to a discussion on interments, grave goods, and burial customs. Contains a valuable catalogue of all the graves used for the analysis of burial customs arranged by geographical area.
