Tombs

Abstract

George Santayana wrote, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." History provides knowledge for unlocking all other realms of human development. The study of history provides a solid foundation not only for history and social studies education majors, but for careers in law, business, government, international relations, journalism, library services and museums, to name but a few.

    The 2010-2012 Seasons were devoted to mapping the hundreds of tombs which surround the sanctuary complex at Lingrin tou Dhigeni.  At left is the preliminary map of those rock-cut tombs which are visible today.

    The RFE cleaned this tomb in 2001. Note the dromos with rock-cut steps.
