Amphipolis tomb is NBC’s biggest scientific mystery for 2014


“Who’s buried in a 2,300-year-old tomb in Greece?” wonders NBC in its list of the biggest scientific mysteries that emerged in 2014, referring to the vast tomb unearthed in Amphipolis earlier in the year.

The discovery topped the US broadcaster’s list of cases in which scientists “answered old riddles, faced up to life-and-death riddles, or found new ones.”

“Archaeologists discovered a previously unknown tomb in northern Greece that they dated to Alexander the Great’s era in 300 B.C. So far they’ve found intriguing mosaics, statues of maidens and sphinxes – and a skeleton. Who was buried there? We should get a better idea in 2015,” NBC says.
