Thessaloniki and Pella excavations – wow!

Thanks to Explorator for this link to The Mail On Sunday

As David Meadows says, this has photos galore, so I just give the link and the opening:

It would be more than 100 years at least until Alexander the Great
led the forces of Macedonia to conquer the Hellenistic world.

But, even in its early days, the Greek kingdom’s warriors were already an imposing sight on the battlefield.

A
dig in an ancient burial ground in Alexander’s birthplace of Pella,
northern Greece, has unearthed the graves of 20 warriors in battle
dress, a find which archaeologists say sheds fresh light on the
development of Macedonian culture.
