  • Sensational Grave Find in Cypriote Bronze Age City

The grave and its offering pit, located adjacent the Bronze Age city of Hala Sultan Tekke, contained many fantastic gold objects such as a diadem, pearls, earrings and Egyptian scarabs, as well as more than 100 richly ornamented ceramic vessels. The objects, which originate from several adjacent cultures, confirm the central role of Cyprus in long-distance trade.

What has previously been understood as references to heroic feats, kings and wars in fact seems to refer to the monument itself.
