The "Anna Komnene" digital collection features archaeological sites, monuments and building complexes from all periods of Byzantine history and from all the major centres of the Byzantine world. In Greece, it covers sites in the regions of Attica, Thessaloniki and Mystra, and elsewhere in regions of Armenia, Algeria, FYROM, Georgia, Jordan, Cyprus, Romania, Russia, Serbia and Tunisia – highlighting the wide sphere of influence of Byzantine culture both in the Mediterranean area and its surrounding regions and in other parts of the continents of Europe, Asia and Africa.The common point of reference linking all these historic sites and buildings is their artistic quality (in terms of architecture and decoration). Most of them are included in the UNESCO world heritage list. The various types and styles of building represent practically every phase in Byzantine architectural history, while their distribution across the whole area of Byzantine influence and their styles of decoration (painting, etc.) offer examples of some of the most sublime moments in Byzantine art.
This digital collection includes information and images from the royal tombs of Mycenae (Grave Circles A and B) and the tomb of Vapheio (16th-15th century B.C).
