MYCENAE: THE PREHISTORIC CEMETERY 5

Citadel House Graves

Eight graves were found during the Helleno-British excavations of 1966-68 below the LH III B buildings of the Citadel House Area, and two more by Prof. Mylonas in 1973.  More may well exist since excavation stopped at the LHIIIB floor levels in most placces.
