Walls lined with gold: Ancient Greek tombs reveal their amazing treasures 1576901219-1576512658586


UC archaeologists Jack Davis and Sharon Stocker are continuing the legacy of the late Carl Blegen, pictured above, former head of UC's Classics Department who discovered the Palace of Nestor in 1939 with Greek archaeologist Konstantinos Kourouniotis. Blegen wanted to investigate the olive groves that concealed the Griffin Warrior but could not get permission at the time so the discovery waited 80 years until another UC archaeology team would make the startling find.
