Kerameikos

Kerameikos

Athens, Greece

This museum and the surrounding site was a surprise for Chris and I since we had no idea what we would find. After a fairly long walk out here, we found an intriguing ancient cemetery for wealthy Athenians. The nearby museum was also fascinating, displaying many of the gravestones. It also told of a mass grave found at the site that corresponds with literature at the time discribing a plague. There's a lot to learn from a society's burial grounds.
