You can find more photos by looking up Messinia, Pylos- University of Cincinnati. For the first time we have an intact golden chain of the deceased.

Thanks system1988! I had not seen that article or photo. There are a few others on this find on my blog.

Some of the English-language articles mention impressions of textiles and what sound like the remains of a Dendra Panoply.

Here is the link, I urge you all to watch the slideshow, it is astonishing. Among other things, the comb is completely ergonomic. From what I know ont he matter (which is not much) something like this would take another 3500 years to appear again in human civilizations. The three-bull depiction is also rare. Furthermore, for the ivory handle of the mirror to survive, it is amazing.

So that's what it meant for one to die a rich Mycenean warlord.
