Amphipolis Greece: Archaeologists to scan hill for more tombs


As the excavation of the Amphipolis tomb is nearing its completion, archaeologists have good reason to believe that more burial monuments could be found in the area, newspaper Eleftherotypia reported.

Archaeologists have come to the conclusion that there is no fourth chamber in the Amphipolis tomb, but upon completion of their work in about 10 days they will use x-ray scanners to search the surrounding area for other tombs on the Kasta Hill.

The tomb’s round precinct is half a kilometre long, offering plenty of room for other tombs to be buried within its boundaries, as happens in the burial site of the kings of Macedonia in Vergina, archaeologists say.
