Exciting new finds at the archaeological site of Pella have opened a new chapter in Macedonian history. Beneath the ruins of the ancient capital of the Macedonian kingdom is a large prehistoric burial ground that has yielded the first evidence of organized life in Pella during the third millennium BC.

It seems that the skeletons found are of taller than average height, which gives some credence to the origins of the name Macedon as meaning a tall people.
