Any info from actual professional/academic sources? The case as put by the lowest common denominator... I mean, "media", seems to consist of high status tombs + pottery and coins of about the right date + a few unspecified ye-anciente-writen sources.
The author said he has submitted a series of papers on the subject (he said volumes) that we should see published soon, I hope. The finding was already reported in 1996 in a publication, but its association with Aristotle is new. I will look for the reference
Hopefully, the association with Aristotle is more than 2016 being declared the year of Aristotle due to 2400 anniversary of his birth. Coinsidently, one day before this article in Greek reporter, i was in Mieza. There was a lecture in Mieza's ancient theatre for archeologists/historians that came from many different countries for anniversary celebration (or so i was told by person in Mieza mini museum). They knew nothing about Aristotle's grave. One would think it was a proper platform to announce such a conclusion but, who knows.....
I came back home yesterday. It was an absolutely fantastic trip. I actually stayed 3 full days in Macedonia (Naoussa). I day I spent in Mieza and visited some nearby tombs, another day in Pella and another day in Vergina. I cam back with a lot of impressions and photos. Now I have to work on my trip report.
