Tour the Amphipolis tomb

The media frenzy around the discovery of a massive and richly decorated tomb in Amphipolis, near Serres shows now signs of slowing down, especially since a skeleton was found at the site last week that is believe to be on of Alexander the Great’s generals. To appease the insatiable archaeology fans, this weekend, Skai TV and the newspaper Kathimerini released a 3D animated tour of the tomb, showing the treasures archaeologists have uncovered so far: two sphinxes, two caryatids and an intricate floor mosaic.
