Amphipolis: Scan indicates human interventions on Kasta Hill “minor”

The Ministry of Culture has announced that according to the results of the geophysical scan of Kasta Hill in Amphipolis, where the enigmatic ancient Greek tomb has been located, the human intervention has be rather limited.

The team of scientists primarily used electrical tomography techniques – and to a lesser extent a ground penetrating radar (GPR) – in order to examine human intervention on the hill. As it transpires, the man-made embankment is only a minor portion of the hill.

The geophysical survey and mapping of Kasta Hill began on the 11th of November and is carried out whenever the weather conditions permit. Scientists expect the scan to highlight areas of interest for future archeological investigation.
