This object has the following keywords:
- daggers - Weapons with a short, double-edged, sharp-pointed blade and a grip, used for stabbing or parrying.
- reproductions - Copies of art images, art objects, decorative arts, or other valued images or objects, made without intent to deceive; with regard to art images, it includes photographic reproductions. The term implies more precise and faithful imitation than does the term "copies (derivative objects)." Where the intent is to deceive, see "forgeries" or "counterfeits." For prints copying other two-dimensional works, typically dating from before the widespread use of photography, use "reproductive prints."
- shaft graves - Graves consisting of deep, rectangular or round vertical or angled tunnels or shafts, or such shafts located above larger burial chambers. Examples are found at ancient Greek, Mycenaen, Egyptian, other Middle Eastern, Pre-Columbian, and Asian sites. The custom particularly flourished in the late Bronze Age (ca. 1600-1450 BCE), when the Greek mainland came under the cultural influence of Crete. To refer exclusively to the graves at Mycenae and other Bronze Age Greek sites, use "Shaft Grave period."
