Archaeologists unearthing a burial site at Amphipolis in northern Greece have made an "extremely important find", says Greek PM Antonis Samaras.

Experts believe the tomb belonged to an important figure dating back to the last quarter of the Fourth Century BC.

A large mound complex has been unearthed at the Kasta hill site in the past two years.

Lead archaeologist Katerina Peristeri said it certainly dated from after the death of Alexander the Great.

"The land of Macedonia continues to move and surprise us, revealing from deep within its unique treasures," Mr Samaras said while visiting the mound complex on Tuesday.

Other ancient sites have been found in the Macedonia region of northern Greece, principally the Vergina tomb of Alexander's father, Philip II, which was unearthed in 1977.

There has been widespread speculation that a prominent figure in ancient Macedonia may have been buried at Kasta hill, 600km (370 miles) north of Athens.

The burial mound is 497m (1,600ft) long and constructed with marble imported from the nearby island of Thassos and there are suggestions it was built by the renowned architect, Dinocrates, who was a friend of Alexander's.

Things are certainly shaping up!

The tomb of Osiris empty. Gilgamesh's body recovered, and now THIS?

Enjoy!

Are they hinting that it could be Alexander the Great himself? Or have I got it wrong. If it is, wow!

I believe so, yes.

But, I would be cautious as they have been wrong before, no?

ETA: Check out the base.

This is definitely a VERY important site. No one really knows where Alexander the Great's body ended up. Some say near his father, others say in Babylon and other places.
This is very exciting. I have good feeling about this.

Would be interesting, but I suspect it will be one of Alexanders generals. None of the stories from history suggest his body might have wound up going home to Macedon do they? They all point towards Memphis and Alexandria.
