    Nathalie Del Socorro Miniature Objects from the Archaic Tombs of Macedonia  Abstract A number of miniature objects in the shape of carts, tables, chairs, spits and spit holders have been found inside archaic tombs in the region of Macedonia. Their signification is difficult to determine as many different hypothesis have been formulated. However, it would seem that they were used as both status and gender markers. Most of these objects were made ouf of iron, but some bronze examples have also been found.   Keywords: miniature objects, iron, bronze, archaic tombs, Ancient Macedonia Reference: Del Socorro
