The Team at Amphipolis

I fully agree with Dr Peristeri on this issue! Whilst we are all allowed to have opinions about the tomb, she and her team are clearly doing good work of the same high standard as their work elsewhere.

Not only have they put together a very good team, but from everything I have seen, their work is exemplary.

The reason their progress is easy for me to 'read' in the photos and to explain is because they are following the highest standard of archaeological practice, so I understand what they are doing step by step.

This is the sort of text-book perfect excavating that is rarely seen on other excavations, and that I wish both more foreign archaeologists and Greek ones imitated.
