|SUBJECT||shaft graves (tombs)|
|NOTES||Graves consisting of deep, rectangular or round vertical or angled tunnels or shafts, or such shafts located above larger burial chambers. Examples are found at ancient Greek, Mycenaen, Egyptian, other Middle Eastern, Pre-Columbian, and Asian sites. The custom particularly flourished in the late Bronze Age (ca. 1600-1450 BCE), when the Greek mainland came under the cultural influence of Crete. To refer exclusively to the graves at Mycenae and other Bronze Age Greek sites, use "Shaft Grave period."|
