Skeleton of ancient warrior and hoard of treasure found in 3,500-year-old tombhttp://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/oct/26/skeleton-ancient-warrior-treasure-found-greece-tomb#_=_
US archaeologists in Greece (http://www.theguardian.com/world/greece) have uncovered the skeleton of an ancient warrior that has lain undisturbed for more than 3,500 years along with a huge hoard of treasure, according to the Greek culture ministry.
The treasure is “the most important to have been discovered in 65 years” in continental Greece (http://www.theguardian.com/world/greece), the ministry said.
The wooden coffin of the unknown soldier – evidently a person of some importance – was found on the site of the Mycenaean-era Palace of Nestor on Greece’s Peloponnese peninsula.

....The Warrior rested long and well....good for him. To be buried with all the jewelry
and his sword does suggest he was an important person...and brave to be buried
with his sword....Nice find!
