Tomb of the Greek Vases

Tomb of the Greek Vases

Banditaccia necropolis, Cerveteri, Italy

7th century BCE


The tomb has a short corridor, with cells to the sieds, leading into the main room. The main room has three typical Etruscan trapezoid doors leading into burial chambers. The beds are of almost monumental size. The tomb got its name from the fact that hundreds of vases, mostly from Greece, were found in it.

On this day, 10 July 1985, the French intelligence service blew up the Greenpeace ship, Rainbow Warrior, in New Zealand killing Fernando Pereira, a photographer. The ship was headed to protest against French nuclear testing. France initially denied responsibility but NZ police arrested two of its agents and charged them with murder. Eventually they were sentenced to 10 years’ prison for manslaughter, but the French government freed them after just two years.
