THE GREAT TUMULus


Infographics for National Geographic about the great tumulus, a mound of earth over a grave in Vergina where the remains of Phillip II are buried.
In 1977, the archaeologist Manolis Andronikos, found some remains which supposedly belonged to Phillip II. In 2015, a different group of archeologists carried out and questioned who those remains really belonged to causing some controversy. I focus the information on the excavations in the Vergina area and show the contents inside the tombs by describing the remains found.

I built the tomb using materials such as clay, PVC, porexpan, wood, plaster and sand.
