In Greece’s largest tomb, archaeologists have been uncovering the first two chambers, which produced finds like the caryatids, sphinxes and various artefacts.
Now they’ve begun work on the third epic chamber, but it’s turning out to be a little more difficult than the first two chambers. The limestone walls are collapsing and cracking in the arched dome area. The walls, showing evidence of red paint, around the marble pillars have begun to detach from it’s main structure making it unsafe for archaeologists to do any work so far.
The debris is being removed and the walls will be stabilised so that the chamber doesn’t collapse.
