The non-monumental, 'simple' graves of the Mycenaean world have not been widely studied or discussed in the literature on the Aegean Bronze Age. In this study, Kazimierz Lewartowski focuses on these 'simple' graves, producing a catalogue of more than 1200 examples and discussing various aspects of their nature, design, location and contents in a statistical and descriptive way. The graves are discussed in terms of the different types (construction, context, chronology and topography), the nature of the deceased (age, sex, posture, orientation), the grave assemblages found within the burials, and the customs, beliefs, symbolism and ceremonies associated with the burials.
