Archaeologists have uncovered what could be the grave of Alexander the Great at a site near ancient Amphipolis.
The warrior king - who ruled in the 4th century BC - was thought to be buried in Egypt. But experts have now become excited after they uncovered a marble-faced wall dating from the time.
The structure measures an impressive wall measuring 500 metres long and three metres high, which archaeologists believe could contain a royal grave.
The site near ancient Amphipolis lies 370 miles north of Athens.....

They discovered the body of Alexander’s Father Phillip in a large chamber in Macedonia. I can’t recall if it was in Pella or not.
Has the grave of his mother Olympias ever been found? If not, I’m guessing this is it.
Phillip’s grave was in a place called Verginia, which I’m guessing is close to Pella.
Have scientists discovered the long lost tomb
of Obama the wonderful? Hero of the Syrian war,
combiner of all higher education, before he burned
all the manuscripts?
I suppose it could be true, is there a wizend blond
crone buried under the throne? If so it’s his vizier
state secretary Clinton.
It will be interesting to see, regardless whose monument this is.
They dipped Alex in a casket of honey, hmmm. I think I would prefer Horatio Nelson’s dunking in a barrel of rum. (He got out thrice to pee.)
If that’s Alexander’s tomb, this is Hugh.
IIRC, Alexander the Great was a Great Warrior, and a homosexual. Many soldiers and warriors were. For muscular men with raging hormones, women were rarely available except after an invasion (rape and pillage of a village).
He was not , however a faggot. A queer. Being homosexual (expecially in the dedicated warriors group) was considered normal. Besides, whose gonna question a guy who could cut you in half just for looking at him wrong?
The point is that Alex never made his homosexuality (or anyone else’s) an issue.
The problem with modern homosexuals is that they are being promised special considerations, a springboard to power, and a chance to make heterosexuals literally kiss their ass.
They, like the negroes, are being used by the wealthy and powerful to play chess with the world’s resources and land.
They are being promised much, as long as they destroy the unity and soul of the nation.
What they don’t know, is when the takeover is made public, they will be lined up against the wall and shot.
IIRC Alexander was encased in honey and then his body was on display in Alexandria well into Roman times. Many ancient writers visited and saw it.
This new tomb might be that of a major figure, but is therefore not likely to be Alex’s.
Alexander’s toumb in Alexandria was famous in antiquity. How do the think the remains got to Greece?
Take me back to old Verginia....
Actually, women were nearly always available. They were the camp followers who served as washer women, and in other roles.
That even happened in the Civil War and Revolutionary War
Maybe they all looked like Oprah.
That could easily be the case. Just like today, not all the wealthy and powerful are known publicly. There are many more graves than there are heroes.
That was the first time I'd heard that. It was pretty convincing.
