Greece throuth Ioanna's eye
We participated in a different cultural trip to Mycenae with the distinguished professor of Dickinson College archeology Christofili Mangidi, President of the Mycenaean Foundation and the responsible of excavation of the Mycenae Lower Town. He toured us with his own magical way to the kingdom of mythical Agamemnon and told us about the Lower City excavations, but also for the very important archaeological discovery and identification of the palace throne of Mycenae, which was made by him and his scientific team. This experience will be forever etched in our mind and heart!
