Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:
3500 year old jewelry found in Greek tomb
The jewels were found in a tomb from about 1500 BCE, says the Greek Ministry of Culture. The ministry says it is the most impressive discovery of prehistoric burial jewels of the last 65 years on the Greek mainland.
The valuables were with a body that was laid in a wooden coffin. The body was of a man of 30 to 35 years old, probably an important fighter of the early Mycenaean civilization.
That this discovery was made in the tomb of a man debunked the assertion that jewels were laid only in female graves, said the ministry. The discovery was made by an international team of archaeologists led by United States Americans at the University of Cincinnati.
The tomb apparently escaped the attention of thieves who have robbed another tomb in the same area.
