New claims that Macedonians invented cement
Archaeologists have made a fresh discovery of some of the finest treasures in Ancient Greece. In addition, from examining buildings in the area, Dr Angeliki Kottaridi believes cement may have been invented by the Macedonians and not the Romans.

The discoveries were made in a royal complexadjacent to this humble mound, which is Greece's equivalent of the pyramids.
Recent analysis of buildings here has shown that the Macedonians created cement three centuries before the Romans, who were previouslycredited with the invention.
At a time when Greece is teetering on the brink of bankruptcy, this discovery is extremely fortuitous. The Greeks are hoping that tourists will flock to see a building that is second only in significance to the Parthenon in Athens.
These are exciting times in Vergina, because Dr. Kottaridi is planning soon to open one of the sealed tombs, in the hope of discovering more treasure belonging to the dynasty of Alexander the Great.
