The richest Mycenaean gold antiquities were excavated from the royal tombs of Mycenae. The Royal Tombs , referred to by archaeologists as Grave Circle A and B, unearthed rich burials findings of silver and gold. The tomb treasures evidence the preeminence of the Mycenaeans, especially the Treasury of Atreus, a monumental tomb outside the Palace of Mycenae. Shaft Graves also at Mycenae (1550 BC) revealed extraordinary material wealth, proof of a powerful elite society that flourished in the subsequent four centuries. The so called Mask of Agamemnon is a gold funeral mask was discovered at Mycenae and can be seen in our photo gallery. German archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann, who discovered the artefact in 1876, believed that he had found the body of the Mycenaean king Agamemnon, leader of the Achaeans in Homer's epic of the Trojan War, the Iliad, but modern archaeological research suggests that the mask dates to about 1600 BC, pre-dating the period of the legendary Trojan War by about 400 years.
