Bronze Age burial on Cyprus reveals ancient artifacts

The find reaffirms Cyprus's place in history as an intricate player in long-distance trade.
A tomb discovered at the Late Bronze Age site of Dromolaxia-Vizakia, (Hala Sultan Tekke) in Cyprus in 2016 has revealed one of the richest bronze age burials ever discovered on Cyprus. The graves date to 1500 BC. The burial belonged to a rich family and had hidden treasures of over 100 ceramic vessels and precious gold ornaments and gem stones that were from several adjacent cultures.
Gemstones and five cylinder seals that came from the region as well as from Syria and Mesopotamia, along with gold earrings and gold Egyptian scarabs were found.
