What a fascinating find!

"He married between five and seven women, causing confusion over the line of succession." Hm - historically one of the surer ways of cementing your own assassination!

Excellent! Now that we know who the tomb belongs to, we might could find some awesome arifacts to help us figure out maybe just where Alexandre is.

Peace and Love,

Ricky.

I do believe that Tomb II was sealed long before the remains of Alexander III were moved to their final destination. So it makes no sense to look for clues in a much earlier tomb...

I am interested in any and all historical information.

it's amazing how much can be learned when we stop and carefully examine everything. i'm always amazed at the amount of gold that's found. the amount of gold will still never pass the amount of knowledge we can learn from these sites.

love, light and blessings

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
