The Mysterious Ruins Of An Ancient Palace Found In Greece

Remains were found at an excavation site near Sparta in the Peloponnese region

Archaeologists in Greece have unearthed the ruins of a palace from the Mycenaean Age, which appear to include some important archaic inscriptions.

The find includes clay figures, swords, murals and objects of worship.

The Greek Ministry Of Culture say the palace’s remains will allow researchers to explore the “political, administrative and, economic and societal organisation of the region” and provide “new information on the beliefs and language systems of the Mycenaean people”.

This year, more than 150 archaeological excavations have already been conducted in Greece. In the past few years, excavations have discovered a series of tablets inscribed with details of religious ceremonies, names and places in an ancient script.
