The palace complex at Mycenae included shrines and temples, but also granaries, guardrooms, and a few private dwellings. Important archaeological components of the site include Grave Circle A and the Lion Gate.
Archaeologists who have taken a whack at the excavations include Heinrich Schliemann, Christos Tsountas, Alan Wace, and most recently, Spiridon Iavokides.
