Tomb Photographs

<p style='text-align: justify;'>The ‘Treasury of Atreus’ belongs to the third group of tholoi at Mycenae, as categorised by A.J.B. Wace, dating to ca. 1400-1300 BCE. A.J.B. Wace and his team made preliminary, exploratory tests in 1920 and 1921 to establish the date of the tomb. A full investigation of the edifice, and an excavation of the ‘bothros’ (waste pit) that bisected the dromos, was carried out in 1939.</p>
