Σοκ για τα Σκόπια:”Είστε αμαθείς και εξοργιστικοί”,τους λέει καθηγητής της Οξφόρδης!!!

MACEDONIA IS GREECE AND NOT F.Y.R.O.M.! (0:30) Thank you very much, the Ashmolean Museum and Mr. Robin Lane Fox from the Great Britain’s respected Oxford University! About the speaker: Skopje is the capital city of the Former Yugoslav Republic of “Macedonia” (F.Y.R.O.M.) I did not make this video and I do not own it. The copyright belongs to the creator of this video, the Ashmolean Museum, which deserves all my gratitude.

In the groundbreaking exhibition ‘Heracles to Alexander the Great’ the Ashmolean will show more than 500 extraordinary objects, most of which go on display for the first time anywhere in the world. These recent finds were discovered in the royal burial tombs and the palace at Aegae, the ancient capital of Macedon. They rewrite the history of early Greece and tell the story of the royal court and the kings and queens of Macedon, descendants of Heracles whose rule culminated in the empire of Alexander the Great. Aegae remained relatively unknown until 30 years ago when excavations uncovered the unlooted tombs of Philip II and his grandson Alexander IV. Recent work at the site by the 17th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities, and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, has continued to unearth a startling wealth of objects — from beautifully intricate gold jewellery, silverware and pottery, to sculpture, mosaic floors and architectural remains.
