DENDRA (Village) MIDEA
In the Vicinity of Dendra, the archaeological excavations in 1938 dag up magnificent carved and vaulted tombs, the funeral gifts of which were transferred and are now permanent exhibits in the Museums of Nafplio and Athens. The most prominent among these finds are the mycenean panoply, which was made in around 1450BC, and the urn depicting an octopus, representative of the naturalistic technique.
The archaeological site in Dendra is one of the most important archaeological sites of the Province, as it is for that matter shown by the finds of more recent excavations in that area.
