Reception to follow
Discover the spectacular finds unearthed from the undisturbed burial site of the so-called Griffin Warrior, Prince of Pylos. Dr. Jack L. Davis, Professor of Greek Archaeology at the University of Cincinnati, describes the excavation of this remarkable grave, which included the discovery of four exquisite gold rings. Located a few hundred meters from the Palace of Nestor, though three centuries older, this unanticipated finding has afforded an unparalleled opportunity to examine funerary ritual, gender, and gender distinctions in burial practices.
