Mycenaean Place discovered at Sparta
On August 25, 2015 the Greek Culture Ministry announced: “The palace complex of Aghios Vassilios provides us with a unique opportunity to investigate, with the use of modern excavation and analysis methods, the creation and evolution of a Mycenaean palatial center in order to reconstruct the political, administrative, economic and social organization of the region.
