The Prehistoric Cemetery: Pre-Mycenaean and Early Mycenaean Graves
In this fascicule Maureen Alden brings together for the first time all of the evidence, much of it previously unpublished, for the large cemetery which stretched around the citadel hill at Mycenae. The material published here about grave types, burial offerings and the remains of the early Mycenaeans themselves, balances the picture provided by the two outstanding groups of `royal' burials in Grave Circles A and B which form part of the same cemetery.
