Ancient Greek Palace Unearthed near Sparta


GreeceĀ“s culture ministry announced Tuesday that archaeologists have unearthed an ancient Mycenaean palace near Sparta.

The palace was built around the 17th-16th centuries BC. Its remnants were discovered at the archaeological site known as Aghios Vassilios Hill near the ancient village of Xirokambi.

The discovery is expected to help "reconstruct the political, administrative, economic and social organization of the region" as well as bring to light "new evidence on Mycenaean religion, linguistics and paleography".
