Alexander the Great

Archaeologists in Greece uncover a large floor mosaic at a huge burial site at Amphipolis dating to the time of Alexander the Great.


The mosaic - 3m (10ft) wide and 4.5m (15ft) long - depicts a man with a laurel wreath driving a chariot drawn by horses and led by the god Hermes.
The burial site is said to be the largest ever found in Greece.
It dates from the late 4th Century BC, spurring speculation that it is linked to Alexander the Great of Macedon
