Title:   Double Pit Grave
Category:   Burial
Description:   Mycenaean Double Grave (Graves A and B).
Grave A was in Layer II. We laid a skull and a few other bones, three vases and a stone bead. We have dug to a maximum of about 0.06m below the top of Layer II. It contained two skeletons.
To the South of Grave A and separated from it by a narrow wall apparently of bedrock, was part of another grave. It contained one skeleton.
All of the pottery and bones in both graves are badly crushed.
