Peeping through a hole at Amphipolis' tomb...

A wall, its upper part decorated with a frieze of eight-leaf rosettes in relief and bearing a hole on its top left. This is what archaeologists found as they proceed digging the massive tomb at Kasta Tumulus, Amphipolis during a process that has caused media frenzy in Greece and abroad. 
The wall has been found 6 m. into the tomb's interior, consisting the far side of the first hall, now considered as a vestibule. Unlike the sealing wall that used to block the main entrance (and which has been remobved almost in its entity), this seems to be part of the monument, as it is decorated and well made, and it probably features a door. Still, it seems that someone consideded it as an obstacle well before its location by Katerina Peristeri 's team: It bears a makeshift hole (by looters?) on its top left, givin access to the tomb's well hidden heart. As reported, two rooms are visible thropugh this hole, without further explanation. Time will tell what is really hidden behind, if anything left...

The Santa Maria Discovery: What happens to Christopher Columbus' shipwreck now?

On Tuesday, May 13, it was announced that treasure hunter Barry Clifford had located the shipwreck of the Santa Maria, flagship of famous explorer Christopher Columbus. Found in shallow water off the coast of Haiti, the wreck’s size and location on the reef fits Columbus’ historical records. However, proving the identity of an early wooden shipwreck is difficult, as there is no nameplate or ships’ bell that gives its identity. Other shipwrecks in the area have been misidentified as the Santa Maria before, so it will take careful scientific excavation to determine if the ship is in fact Columbus’ flagship. Following this announcement everyone seems to be wondering, “What happens next?”
