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.
Nine of the graves dated to the late classical or early Hellenistic period, around the death of Alexander the Great in 323BC.
(It is unclear if those are from Pella or Thessaloniki...)

Very interesting, Cristina. Do you know about these tombs?




I wanted to say if you knew more about these tombs. Any latest news?
