The Ministry of Culture is set to make some announcements on Wednesday regarding the excavation efforts taking place in the enigmatic tomb of Amphipolis.
The latest information suggests that an artificial ditch that was discovered in the third chamber is at least 2.5 meters deep, with archeologists suspecting that it may have been the work of tomb robbers.
Other experts have argued that the artificial ditch, measuring 4-by-2.1 meters, is in fact a crypt where at least one burial has taken place. They also expect to find materials and architectural signs supporting their claim.
In the meanwhile, another group of scientists has been tasked with carrying out a geophysical survey of Kasta Hill, where the tomb is located, I order to assist in the excavation efforts. The 3D rendering of the hill may unveil significant findings that will assist in the archeological efforts.
