=========


The telephones in the Greek Ministry of Culture haven’t stopped ringing for
the past few days, in anticipation of the new announcements on Amphipolis
dig.

Hundreds of scientists, archaeology students and plain civilians are
requesting permission to attend the presentation and hear the speeches of
Ms. Katerina Peristeri, head of 28th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical
Antiquities, architect Michael Lefantzis and civil engineer, D. Englezos.

Foreign media have also expressed huge interest in the presentation. In
fact, dozens journalists will travel to Greece to cover the event, which is
scheduled to take place tomorrow at 11 am in the Auditorium of the
Ministry, in the presence of all the archaeologists that participated in
the dig.

It should be noted that this is the first comprehensive briefing on the
entire course of the research, three months after the archaeologists first
entered the ancient tomb.

The event will be moderated by Vasilis Lambrinoudakis, Professor emeritus
of Classical Archaeology, University of Athens, and Nikos Stambolidis,
archaeologist and director of the Museum of Cycladic Art.
