The Cemetery of the Tumuli

More than five-hundred (500) burial tumuli constitute the core of the archaeological site of Aigai.

They offer to the visitor a unique view of the original shape of a Macedonian cemetery in the ancient times. The earliest tumuli date to the 11th c. BC, while the main use of this part of the necropolis dates to the Early Iron Age (10th-7th c. BC), when the Homeric epics were composed.
