Heroon monument of Toumba

Within the site of Lefkanti, the Monument of “House of Toumba” is one of the largest structures which date back to the so called “Dark Ages” of Greece. The house itself appears to have been built around 1000 BC and included several graves built in shafts underneath the structure. The tombs contained human and horse skeletons, and the rich artefacts found included the earliest known piece of clothing in the form of an ankle-length robe.
