Pylos Tomb!

nestors_tomb-thumb-largeThis Monday, the Ministry of Culture in Greece announced the discovery and excavation of a Bronze Age tomb at Pylos in the Peloponnese, by the American-led team there (of Jack Davis and Shari Stocker). This is an unparalleled find that is covered by The New York Times, the University of Cincinnati, and CNN (where you’ll find a quote by me). Above is an ivory comb that was part of the assemblage. I am proud and honored to work with all of these great archaeologists here in Athens!
