Mycenaean tombs found
Greek archaeologists have uncovered four intact tombs about 30 centuries old and Roman baths from a later period in the south-west of the country, the local media reported on Monday.

The four tombs date from the Mycenaean period (1450 BC to 1050 BC) and are reported to contain many objects such as toys, ceramics and figurines.

The find was made near Olympia in the Peloponnese region in an area which had been excavated in the 1960s and the end of the 1990s.
