A hitherto unknown Mycenaean cemetery was revealed in Soha, near Leonidio, by recent heavy rainfall, with the finds dating back to the 14th century BC, archaeologists said.
Five box-shaped multiple tombs were unearthed in Soha, near Vaskina village, some 10 kilometers northwest of Leonidio.
A recovery excavation was then conducted by the 38th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities.
The most impressive of the funerary gifts found in the graves were several clay sympotic vases.
