Sinkhole gives hope for finding Alexander the Great’s tomb

Post by DJKeefy »

Sinkhole in Alexandria gives hope for archaeologists to find Alexander the Great’s tomb.

A sinkhole near the Waterfalls Garden in Alexandra’s Azarita district, where the Greek archaeological mission is excavating, gives archaeologists hope in finding the tomb of Alexander the Great.

On Monday morning, the sinkhole caused the ground to fell several meters.

An archaeologist said in a press statement on Monday that the sinkhole indicates there are ancient artifacts below, adding that this area was a royal Ptolemaic neighborhood where many artifacts have been found before.

The source also said that a building was erected over another Greco-Roman archeological site in the same area, and that the authorities did not approve excavation beforehand.
