The Archaeological Site of Vergina

The ancient first capital of the kingdom of Macedonia -- the city of Aigai -- was discovered in the last century near Vergina, in northern Greece. The most important remains are the monumental palace, lavishly decorated with mosaics and painted stucco, and the burial ground with more than 300 tumuli, some of which date from the 11th century BC. One of the royal tombs in the Great Tumulus is identified as that of Philip II, who conquered all the Greek cities, paving the way for his son Alexander and the expansion of the Hellenic world.
