In Photos: Spartan Temple and Cultic Artifacts Discovered

The long-lost palace of Sparta, one of the most famous civilizations in ancient Greece, may have been discovered. Archeologists have unearthed a 10-room palace holding cultic objects and clay tablets written in a lost script. Here’s a look at the remains of the Sparta temple and striking artifacts.

History and other written artifacts such as Homer’s epics, reveal that during the Mycenaean period, Sparta was a flourishing culture. Yet no palace had been found from that time period until now.  (Photo Credit: Greek Culture of Ministry)
