Archaeologists in Greece have uncovered a Mycenaean (16th-17th century BC) era palace near the ancient city of Sparta.

Numerous artefacts have been found, including a cup with bull’s horns.

The ministry explained that the discovery will allow for the "political, administrative, economic and societal organisation of the region”.

It could also provide "new information on the beliefs and language systems of the Mycenean people.”
