Piecing together the puzzle of Mycenaean Achaea. Brief stories from the cemetery of Agios Vasileios, Chalandritsa (lecture in Greek)

The Mycenaean chamber tomb cemetery of Agios Vasileios in Chalandritsa (Achaia), although discovered as early as in 1928 by Nikolaos Kyparissis, never underwent a systematic excavation or study. The recent study of all available data was mainly based on the results of rescue excavations that took place in the cemetery from 1989 to 2001, always under the shadow of looting.
