Over the past two and a half decades, archaeologists have excavated the acropolis, city, and necropolis of ancient Eleutherna under the direction of Nicholas Stampolidis. Excavations have shown that the people who lived here--descendants of the Bronze Age civilizations of both the Minoans and the Mycenaeans--controlled a vast territory, beginning around the ninth century B.C. The site is 10 miles from the so-called "cave of Zeus," where the head of the Greek pantheon was raised. Source: Prof. N. Ch. Stampolidis/archaeology.org

Archeologists discovered the remains of a high priestess and her three female protegees at an ancient necropolis in Greece -- a discovery that can shed light on the early ages. At the ancient necropolis of Orthi Petra in Crete, Greece, they found a number of female skeletons, laid to rest with jewels made from luxury materials such as gold, silver and ivory. The richness of the burial offerings show that these women were of high standing -- priestesses, healers or sorcerers. It also suggests that the women were not inferior to men, since they were buried just feet from male warriors.  Source: Prof. N. Ch. Stampolidis/archaeology.org
