Findings unearthed by archaeologists in the southern half of the Ionian islet of Meganissi, southeast of the holiday island of Lefkada, are of major scientific, historical and cultural value, experts said on Tuesday.
Excavations in the region of Kefali over the past two years brought to light an untouched Mycenaean-era tomb. According to reports, there is evidence that archaeologists have in fact discovered a complex of Mycenaean tombs.
The Teleboans island complex, where Meganissi belongs, are the remnants of a larger peninsula that existed in pre-Classical antiquity, according to archaeologists.
The area where the excavations are taking place belongs to a British company, the majority shares of which are owned by banker Lord Rothschild.
