Is this Greek hilltop the 2,400-year-old burial place of Aristotle?
Greek archaeologist ‘almost certain’ he has discovered the long-sought tomb of world’s greatest philosopher

Northern Greece has been the scene of several discoveries, though not all of them have been well received. In 2014, amid great fanfare, a tomb initially believed to be the long-sought burial place of Alexander the Great was found in Amphipolis, also in central Macedonia.

Scholars subsequently agreed it was not related to the Macedonian warrior king, with many accusing authorities of deliberately overplaying the discovery to distract Greeks at a time of economic and social hardship.
