Rhitsona Excavation 1907-1909: Season 1907
Excavation: Research excavation
Twenty-two graves were discovered at the site of Rhitsona in 1907. The site had been explored by R.M. Burrows in 1905, provisionally identifying it as ancient Mycalessos. The graves, for the most part were undisturbed, yielding material dating to the 6th century BC. It should be noted that most cemeteries in Boeotia (at this time) had been looted. These graves contribute to the understanding of burial practises for the first time with complete catalogues of grave goods.
Active from 03 Sep 1907 to 14 Sep 1907.
