The news is true and the world of archaeologists, philosophers and academic professionals is finally excited to announce the discovery of the tomb of the most recognisable and important philosopher of Ancient Greece who has changed the course of science and philosophy: Aristotle.
Aristotle, according to writings, died between the 1st and 22nd of October 322 B.C in Chalkida and his ashes were later transferred in Stagira (contemporary Olympiada in Chalkidiki) where he was honored with an impressive funeral ceremony. On top of his tomb, people later built a temple to honor him and then the place has been used as the venue for meetings.
The tomb comprises of a heroon that was built to commemorate the philosopher after his ashes have been buried in the tomb and the ground has been constructed of marble. Various excavations and archaeological research has proven that the arched building cannot but be but the tomb of Aristotle. Decades of research have proven fertile while the lead archaeologist of the expedition, Dr Sismanidis cannot hide his intense feeling about this important excavation that now has added up to the history of Greek civilization in a great way.
