Important ancient tomb discovered in Greece

The Tomb
For the past few years archaeologists have been working on excavating a massive burial mound not far from the ancient city of Amphipolis in Greece. Located just 370 miles north of Athens and dating from the era of Alexander the Great, many have speculated that one of Alexander’s military commanders or family members may be buried inside. Archaeologist Katerina Peristeri dates the burial tomb to between 325 B.C. and 300 B.C. in the era just at the end of the reign of Alexander the Great. Archaeologists have not yet entered the tomb but expect to in the next few days.
