In 2004 the author’s first book The Lost Tomb of Alexander the Great was published to the accompaniment of international media attention, since it reported the first credible suggestion as to the current whereabouts of the long-vanished corpse of the illustrious conqueror. In the intervening years, direct progress on testing of the candidate remains has been thwarted by the Church authorities, yet much new information has emerged, casting the enigma in an ever more probing light.

The Quest for the tomb of Alexander the Great by Andrew Chugg has proved to be the best source of information on this subject. Andrews years of hard work in this field makes him the world's leading authority on this subject and I have no doubt that any future advancements will be based on his work. I would also like to thank Andrew for his personal care and attention to my inquiries.

Andrew Chugg has a formidable passion for research into the history, archeology and ancient literature of all things pertaining to Alexander the Great, equaled only by his exemplary research standards. After searching for a year for the most exhaustive and scholarly work on Alexander's tomb, including looking into many works by major academics, I have found Chugg's work to be far and away the best collection of research on the subject in print. In fact I found more than one academic work, writte ...more

“Alexander emerges as an almost Hamlet-like figure, more sinned against than sinning. In a sense Alexander, too, was haunted and motivated by his father’s ghost... He may well have saved more lives than he destroyed and was rarely gratuitous in the use of violence... his legacy is enormous. He was the founder of the Hellenistic Age, which in turn has bequeathed us the foundations of our modern art, science and culture.” 1 likes
“As a reviewer once told me, the story of Alexander’s tomb without a body is like Hamlet without the Prince…. The rest is silence.” 1 likes
