Heard of the Gordion knot? Know who "untied" it? If you answered, "Alexander the Great." You're right - as the legend goes. But, what's the real story? This issue of DIG has the answer - and many more, all related to the conqueror of the then known world. We'll travel across Asia, trying, with the archaeologists, to locate just which route he took. In Egypt, we have a great time looking for remains of his tomb. And, in Macedonia, we will meet those onsite at the recently discovered tombs at Vergina, "reading" the finds that have some amazing - and controversial - tales to tell. Wonder how Alexander really looked? Well, a newly discovered coin might have the answer - but we'll wait for the issue to tell you.
