Ancient Mycenaean tombs, dating back 3,500 years, have been unearthed in Bodrum, Turkey.

Speaking to the press, Professor Yusuf Boysal, the supervisor of the excavations, said his team so far has found the remains of several tombs, a canteen, a three-handled cup, a jug, a bronze razor, animals’ bones, many pieces of glass and beads with different shapes. In another set of recent discoveries, earlier last week archeologists working at the ancient city of Komana in the northern province of Tokat discovered tombs dating back to the 11th century. The three tombs found are thought to belong to a family – a man, woman and child – according to Emine Sokmen of Hitit University’s archaeology department.
