I cannot believe to my eyes: apse-houses, stirrup-jars and ditch-grave all together! I knew in ancient Macedonia a fragment of a Linear B tablet was found, but never imagined such a plenty of Mycenaean finds. It was really a very good thing. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for your comment.Yes, they named the place the "New Amphipolis' because of the importance of the findings.

Dated to the mid second millennium BC. We need more road works in Greece....
