I See Dead People / Veo A Gente Muerta

ONE OF THE amazing things, to me, on display at the Museum of Málaga is a tomb from the 6th-Century BC found by archaeologists in 2012. It was discovered intact right in the center of Málaga in an area that would have been outside the walls of the Phoenician city. The Phoenecians established the city of “Malaka” around 770 BC. Found in the tomb were the remains of a middle-aged male, a pendant, and battle arms of a Greek warrior.

In Velez-Málaga, north of the city of Málaga, there was a Phoenician settlement called Chorreras, a cemetery was found that contained shaft tombs. Inside one of the shafts was found a stone container holding a burial urn with the cremated remains of a woman along with the protective amulet buried with her.

I forgot to note when the gargoyles originated. But I liked them.

UNA DE LAS cosas asombrosas, para mí, en exhibición en el Museo de Málaga es una tumba del siglo VI aC encontrada por los arqueólogos en 2012. Fue descubierto intacto en el centro de Málaga en un área que habría estado fuera de las murallas de la ciudad fenicia. Los fenicios establecieron la ciudad de “Malaka” alrededor del 770 aC. En la tumba se encontraron los restos de un hombre de mediana edad, un colgante, y los brazos de combate de un guerrero griego.

En Vélez-Málaga, al norte de la ciudad de Málaga, había un asentamiento fenicio llamado Chorreras, se encontró un cementerio que contenía tumbas de pozo. Dentro de uno de los ejes se encontró un recipiente de piedra que contenía una urna de entierro con los restos incinerados de una mujer junto con el amuleto protector enterrado con ella.

Olvidé anotar cuándo se originaron las gárgolas. Pero me gustaron.

THE ASHES FROM THE FUNERAL PYRE WERE PLACED IN THE LARGE JAR. THE OTHER SMALLER JUGS ALONGSIDE IT WERE PART OF THE RITUAL. LOS RESTOS DE LA LIMPIEZA DE LA PIRA FUNERARÍA SE DISPUSIERON EN LA JARRA GRANDE. JUNTO JARROS DE ENGOBE ROJO QUE FORMABAN PARTE DEL RITUAL.

  1. LOVE this stuff! Brings back lots of great memories from university……I was an anthropology major (along with English major).
    Imagine the thrill of finding the tomb intact in 2012?

    1. Jim,
      I need to go back. There was just too much to take in, for me, in one day. With your background, you would love Málaga!

  2. Took me a while to find your new blog. It was blocked on the library computer I’m using. What’s up with that?

    Anyway, I always find these kind of pictures interesting.
