Culture Minister Constantinos Tasoulas said archaeologists digging at the Alexander the Great-era Amphipolis tomb in Macedonia in northern Greece believe that evidence shows it may not have been looted.

Talking to private TV MEGA, he said that, “The landfill in the interior of the antechamber was made to protect the grave,” Tasoulas said adding that “the final answer will be given by the archaeological research….we must see the grave before we say for sure”.

Tasoulas noted that the finds in Amphipolis are good news that “Greek people deserve” adding that the ancient Greek culture and history is a source of pride for the Greeks.

Prime Minister Antonis Samaras last month visited the site and said he expects it will yield a “major find” in the world of archaeology and Greek culture and the exploration since has drawn so much attention that archaeologists have asked politicians to stay away.
