Dear all

I am sending this link to all of you because it contains extremely interesting finds and artifacts. The museum in being presented to the global community along with the 30+ years worth of excavated artifacts (3000 BC- 14th AD). Whoever wants please translate the text since among the findings (ex.) we find a beheaded warrior of the Mycenean era as well golden jewlery of the bee Godess ...

Really, really interesting! I visited this place in summer 1988 and the excavations were in progress. I remember very well the stones of the city, but of course had no occasion to see the beautiful objects you posted here. Thank you very much!
