Grave of ‘Griffin Warrior’ at Pylos Could Be a Gateway to Ci

Post by simonwheeler »

Archaeologists digging at Pylos, an ancient city on the southwest coast of Greece, have discovered the rich grave of a warrior who was buried at the dawn of European civilization.
He lies with a yardlong bronze sword and a remarkable collection of gold rings, precious jewels and beautifully carved seals. Archaeologists expressed astonishment at the richness of the find and its potential for shedding light on the emergence of the Mycenaean civilization, the lost world of Agamemnon, Nestor, Odysseus and other heroes described in the epics of Homer.
Taken from The New York Times website
The warrior’s grave belongs to a time and place that give it special significance. He was buried around 1500 B.C., next to the site on Pylos on which, many years later, arose the palace of Nestor, a large administrative center that was destroyed in 1180 B.C., about the same time as Homer’s Troy. The palace was part of the Mycenaean civilization; from its ashes, classical Greek culture arose several centuries later.
The palaces found at Mycene, Pylos and elsewhere on the Greek mainland have a common inspiration: All borrowed heavily from the Minoan civilization that arose on the large island of Crete, southeast of Pylos. The Minoans were culturally dominant to the Mycenaeans but were later overrun by them.
How, then, did Minoan culture pass to the Mycenaeans? The warrior’s grave may hold many answers. He died before the palaces began to be built, and his grave is full of artifacts made in Crete. “This is a transformative moment in the Bronze Age,” Dr. Brogan said.
The grave, in Dr. Wright’s view, lies “at the date at the heart of the relationship of the mainland culture to the higher culture of Crete” and will help scholars understand how the state cultures that developed in Crete were adopted into what became the Mycenaean palace culture on the mainland.

Interesting find - incredible that it hadn't been discovered before now!

But where is this mysterious 'Ci' that the gateway goes to? :twisted: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :lol: :lol: :lol:

AT Pilos/Pylos in Greece a very powerful site having 4 Ley Lines crossing in the same site is just off the 9 road and where Zachini and Methonis roads meet.This could be the position of where the warrior was buried, its a very special place and would have been kept/used by someone high born Im sure in ancient times, and a fitting place for someone special would be buried here at this position.....The Ley Lines here run n/s and e/w along with n/w to s/e and n/e to s/w, which is something very special in any time ancient or not.

The Palace Of Nector is close to the Bay Of Navarino which is just off the coast near Pilos according to where the dig took place, and the grave found close to the Palace,but Im not sure now.You cannot find the hill of Epano Englianos on Google where the Palace was, so its back to the drawing board.But the site at Pilos is very special today yet unmarked, and was in ancient times much more revered Im sure for its energy and power....The gateway could be the entrance to this site in the past, it would be both today and in the past a place of wonder and magic for those with eyes to see, perhaps a select few knew this and would visit often to connect with higher forces,a special place.
