Photograph of a small greenish white ring. The top of the ring features an unidentifiable figural decoration, and the band is relatively thick indicating that the ring is not made of metal. The preservation and apparent partial vitrification suggest that it is faience.
This image is depicting two black and white photos and two drawings of a figural ring that has had some damage done to it. There are three bands on the ring. There is a decorative head that does not look human. Looks to be made of faience, bone, or ivory. One photo and one drawing show a top view of the ring; the others show a profile view.
The artifact in this image is a necklace made up of many small carved figurines with headpieces on. Some figures appear to be in a sitting position, and some only have their heads remaining with the rest of the body missing. This necklace was a piece of jewlery found at the burial of a woman in what is called the Heroon at Lefkandi near the burial of a cremated man.
The image shows a conserved skull being displayed against a dark backbround. It has been displayed as if in a museum, with mounting and a base.
The image shows a vase that is made of a light clay. The neck is painted with a dark color with three thick, horizontal bands. Right below the neck, there are circles with a dots in their centers. The mouth is shaped and painted like the petals of a flower. The vase may represent a fruit, perhaps a pomegranate.
A collection of blue, white, and tan beads, likely several necklaces or perhaps a cape of some sort.
The image displays an excavation of a skeleton. We can distinguish a skull with an earring and perhaps a necklace. There may be another skull resting above the main skull, or the cranium may have flipped over time.
This image displays three small vases, two textured identically with close-knitted spheres and the other featuring a geometric design. They are egg-shaped with a more narrow spout.
Photograph of a vase lying on a table. This vase is a circular shape with a hollow center, like a donut, called a ring vase. This vase has a think neck with a wider mouth, and two handles on the neck. There is also a royal blue horizontal ladder decoration between the neck and the widest part of the vase.
An photograph of excavation in progress. This is a skeleton. A jaw with teeth and an earring is visible near the top center of the image. A clavicle and humerus and other arm bone are visible to the right. A bead, likely from a necklace, lies on the clavicle. A gold clothing decoration of a thin layer of gold, either a pin or a dress decoration, consisting of two circles connected by a cylinder, is visible next to the humerus. There also appears to be another object on the left hand side...
