Mystery over contents of six foot tall ancient Egyptian sarcophagus discovered in Alexandria
The granite tomb, the biggest ever found in the city, has lain unopened for more than 2,000 years, and some are wondering whether it might even contain the body of Alexander the Great

Made of black granite, the largest ancient Egyptian sarcophagus ever discovered in Alexandria has lain unopened for more than 2,000 years – and no-one knows quite who, or what, lies inside.

The discovery of the black sarcophagus beneath a modern Alexandria street is causing speculation in Egypt and beyond – with some even suggesting it might be the long lost tomb of Alexander the Great.

Like the 'tomb of Odysseas' at Tzanata, it's probably a later noble.

Sounds great! Is that you on the left, Maik, when you used to live there!   :rofl:

See the local fishmonger is sponsoring the event.  No self-interest of course!

How the current heatwave is providing unprecedented opportunities for archaeologists

The current heatwave is providing a near-unprecedented bonanza for archaeologists, as scorched conditions all over Britain expose the previously undiscovered or long-hidden outlines of everything from ancient fortifications to remnants of the Second World War.

In what was described as “a frantic race against time and weather”, archaeologists are scrambling into aeroplanes or flying drones to search for the outlines which are visible from the air as “crop marks”, before they are once more erased by rain.

In Wales alone the new discoveries have included an early medieval cemetery in south Gwynedd, a Roman villa in the Vale of Glamorgan, a prehistoric or Roman farm near Newport and a Roman fortlet near Magor, south Wales.

Members of the public are spotting the signs of everything from Bronze Age burial grounds in their local park to long-forgotten Second World War air raid shelters in back gardens and schools.

And for the professionals, something akin to archaeological gold-rush fever has set in.

Hm, according to the Independent there could be rain and thunderstorms on Thursday... that'll match the mood if Croatia defeat England on Wednesday night...
