Bronze and gold jewellery worn by the buried woman in grave 25 of the Sesklo cemetery.
Middle Bronze Age (1900-1600 BC).

Grave 25 held two adults and a child. Beside the man were a bronze dagger, a bronze knife and a piece of bronze sheet of unknown use. A woman was buried at the opposite end, wearing her jewellery. A clay spindle whorl and a vase complete her grave-gifts. Nothing was found by the child. It is not clear whether the three of them were buried at the same time, but the fact that the finds date to the same period, taken together with the sex and age of the deceased, leads to the conclusion that we have here the unfortunate end of a family.
