Amphipolis, after so many speculations and still more hypes, is tentatively back in the news – although this is an old story altogether.
The Greek Reporter retells the story of Alexandros Kochliaridis born and raised in Amphipolis, who seems to be the first to have found the ruins of the Amphipolis tomb as early as 1964. All through his long career of archaeological discoveries he closely worked together with the renown Dimitrios Lazaridis. He tells the story in this interesting Youtube movie, from which he emerges as the Guardian of Amphipolis.
The Kasta Hill has been used since prehistoric times as a burial site and there are many more tombs than the one that made the headlines a few years ago. It still is everyone’s guess who actually is buried here with the pomp worthy of a very important person or persons.
