Note: Written in 1999 under my former nom de plume Vrin Parker. More recent evidence suggests other relatives of Alexander may be buried there. Yet this has not been conclusively established. Either way, the evidences of Vedic/Asian type artifacts found within the tomb remain.
In 1977, , a royal tomb was found at Vergina, near Saloniaca, in Macedonia, Greece. All the evidence proves it to be the tomb of King Philip, the father of Alexander the Great. However, Western scholars were puzzled because of the many artifacts, within the tomb of an obvious Indian/Vedic nature. Because of these artifacts, some experts dated the tomb to a time after Alexander’s. This theory is no longer being accepted.
Everything in the Tomb, the body in particular, prove the tomb to be that of King Philip, the Father of Alexander the Great. However, for the past 20 years, mainstream academia refused to accept it. Their objections were based on the fact that the tomb was full of Asian artifacts. They argued that these influences could only have come after Alexander’s Asian campaigns. Based solely on this point, they refused to identify the tomb as belonging to King Philip of Macedonia.
It has since been proven that the tomb does belong to King Philip, the father of the famous Alexander. Miniature sculptress found in the tomb are exact replicas of known images of King Philip and Alexander the Great. All the evidence points to the conclusion that the tomb is without a doubt that of Philip. The many Indian artifacts in the tomb prove that Ancient Macedonia and Greece had strong links to India that predate Alexander’s long March Eastward.
Artifacts from Tomb frequently used in historical documentaries
In Michael Wood’s series, In the Footsteps of Alexander the Great, he presents 2 of these sculpted portraits of Alexander and Philip. Archeologists accept these sculpted portraits of Alexander, as the only ones made during his lifetime. Philip’s portrait is also recognized as being made in his lifetime.
The TV Documentary War and Civilization also featured these same sculptures as being that of Alexander and Philip.
Where were these portraits found? They were found in the Macedonian tomb, discovered in 1977.
Tomb Pre-dates Alexander’s March to Asia
Because the tomb is full of Vedic/Indian style artifacts, this is solid proof that Greek culture had a strong connection to India, long before Alexander’s time. The body interned in the tomb, fits every ancient description of King Philip. Without a doubt, it is the tomb of King Philip.
The question is,“Why does King Philip’s tomb have so many Indian influences? How is it possible if the Greek and Indian cultures had no direct contact until Alexander’s Asian campaigns?” The answer is simple. Because Greek culture was originally, Vedic in nature, it is only logical that there would be strong similarities to Indian culture in Greek art, religion and culture.
The tomb of King Philip is also more than proof of Greece’s Vedic past.
It is a smoking gun exposing the odd Academic silence about Humanity’s Ancient Vedic Heritage. Though western scholars are now admitting the tomb to be Philip’s, they are staying mute about the evidences proving Greece’s Vedic heritage. On one hand, western academics are using these tomb artifacts to promote various theories, and on the other hand, they are ignoring the artifacts that prove their theories wrong. Because there is no doubt about the Vedic artifacts found in this one case, one wonders as to how much evidence is out there that has been ignored and perhaps even destroyed.
It is obvious that the current mainstream academic community, has made up it’s mind about world history. Any evidence that contradicts their theories, is not accepted. Rather than change their pet theories, these so-called scholars are willing to change the historic record and force it to conform to their views.
This is the great ignorance of truth that is being perpetrated on the world at large. It is even more ironic that this is being done by the very people,ie. the historians, who have a duty to research and present a true and accurate record of the world’s ancient past.
THE EVIDENCE HAS SURVIVED
In this case, however, the evidence is still available for the serious researcher to evaluate. Some of the items found in the tomb, include a large ceremonial gold shield, decorated with Vedic Swastikas, a beautiful fresco of a lion hunt, still in full color.
Clearly defined, in this fresco, are boundary markers tied around trees. This is a recognized feature of Indian Royal hunting grounds and yet they are clearly seen in this 2300 year old Macedonian fresco. A royal diadem and gold belt, of the type worn by Asian Kings and Princes, were found. Gold solar emblems reminiscent of the Solar Dynasty (Surya Vamsha) were also found in abundance.
These are the most obvious evidences, that we know of. For now, one can only guess as to how much other evidence could be found if Vedic historical researchers, were allowed access to this find.
And one can only wonder how many important finds have gone unrecognized by the mainstream academic community, that has no will nor ability to recognize Vedic artifacts.
