Old tomb in Greece - level 2

Greek scientists uncovered an underground grave with a skeleton in a tomb. People built the tomb in the 4th century BC around the time of Alexander the Great.

The skeleton belonged to a well-known person because people used a lot of marble on the tomb. Experts say that the tomb could belong to a friend or family member of Alexander the Great.

Scientists started digging out the tomb in August. They found pieces of glass and bone which decorated the tomb.

Difficult words: tomb (place where a dead person is buried), BC (before Christ), marble (an expensive type of rock).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
