Amphipolis

The quick answer to the question is I am ignoring leaks and to be honest have not had the time to look at most press and blog coverage. I am going to stick to discussing what is in the press releases and photos the Ministry of Culture release and explaining them. I think it is fair to discuss ideas based on them, but until they release all the information any ideas are just that ... Ideas.

The tomb may or may not contain a body, and we'll have to wait and see.

Phillip II seems to have been buried at Vergina and Alexander the Great was buried in Egypt so was not there.

Amphipolis is a model excavation, and the archaeologists know what they are doing and are some of the best in the world. Discussing their finds and explaining the press releases is in no way meant to be taken as a criticism of them. Once again, I have not been talking to the press, as I think they are the ones who should be doing so - not people claiming they are wrong.
