Pellas plumbing feats

A series of symposia on the on-going excavations undertaken by archaeologists in Pella, the birthplace of Alexander the Great, have revealed that Hellenistic-era Pella enjoyed plumbing and furnaces.The excavations in Pella have added to the findings of a dig in nearby Archontikon at Giannitsa.
