The new examinations of bones from the tombs at Vergina in Greece (ancient Aegae, the ancient Macedonian spiritual capital), including Tomb II which may have housed Philip II, the father of Alexander the Great, provide a backdrop to the book. Grant is fortunate to be in touch with Prof. Theodore Antikas on site and new permits for osteoarchaeological examinations and radiocarbon dating of cremains make this a particularly exciting time. Grant intends to add the latest discoveries to his book between now and its publication date.
