The archaeological excavation site of Amphipolis makes headlines

Until 1953, the Kasta hill was just a geographical site on a map. Since then, it became the Kasta Tomb and later the monument of Amphipolis, a truly unique archaeological discovery.

A large number of theories and speculations surround the findings. Science has not been able to determine, yet, the occupant of the funerary monument. The excavation team speculates that it was ordered by Alexander the Great to receive the remains of Hephaestion.
