Obviously it's not Alexander's tomb. That isn't the real interest here. This isn't the only find ever made in Illinois that has been dismissed as a hoax. It's the artifacts themselves that may, or may not, be legitimate in this case.

Certainly puts an interesting angle on it then. I hate to say it though but by far the most likely source (if said artifacts are genuine) is looting during the Second World War (and then abandoned). This has happened to countless other artifacts also, some of which have subsequently turned up. Done in much the same way that early European explorers (and armies) looted their way around the Near and Mid East and North Africa.
