The royal burial cluster of the Temenid dynasty or burial cluster C’

Modification and promotion of the royal burial cluster of the Temenid dynasty

At the southwestern edge of the cemetery of the tumuli, next to the old Town Hall of Vergina and on the road leading to the Palace, works are in progress for the modification and promotion of the royal burial cluster of the Temenid dynasty. This tomb complex consists of three Macedonian tombs, two hypostyle tombs and a series of monumental cist graves dated back to a period extending from the first half of the 6th century BC to the beginning of the 3rd century BC. As the burial customs and the grave offerings accompanying the dead attest, all these impressive burial monuments belong to kings, prestigious members of the Temenid dynasty.
