Stunning Alexander-era statues found guarding ancient tomb in Amphipolis, Greece
[link to www.abc.net.au]
Hope this hasn't been posted, I did a search but nothing came up.

Two stunning statues have been unearthed holding up the entrance to the biggest ancient tomb ever found in Greece.

The two female figures in long-sleeved tunics were found standing guard at the opening to the mysterious Alexander The Great-era tomb near Amphipolis in the Macedonia region of northern Greece, archaeologists said.

"The left arm of one and the right arm of the other are raised in a symbolic gesture to refuse entry to the tomb," a statement from the Culture Ministry said.

It's an exciting find but I really wish they would let 'old things' rest in peace! I think ancient people buried their people in a special way & they shouldn't be 'disturbed'.

According to a Perth man (Citizenperth????)he is buried in Broome lol

(still under 50%, same article)
After his death at 32 in Babylon, the most celebrated conqueror of the ancient world is believed to have been buried in Alexandria, the Egyptian city he founded - although no grave has ever been found there.

The hunt for his tomb had covered Greece, Egypt, Persia and India, while one Perth man has even suggested he could be buried in Broome.
