ANSWER: A warrior’s grave
Archeologists digging at Pylos, an ancient city in southwest Greece has discovered a grave of a warrior buried at the dawn of European civilisation. He has a bronze sword and collection of rings, jewels and seals. This is the first time since the 1950s that such a rich tomb has been found. The warrior was buried around 1500 BC, next to the site on Pylos on which, many years later, arose the palace of Nestor, a large administrative centre that was destroyed in 1180 BC, about the same time as Homer's Troy. The palace was part of the Mycenaean civilisation.
