This helmet along with some other exceedingly nifty stuff, was uncovered in a small gravesite in Pella, the birthplace of Alexander the Great.


Also a huge prehistoric (Triassic) creature was uncovered in Antartica.

Quote follows:

"Its tooth-packed mouth, 2.75-foot-long head and 15-foot body help to explain how this beast, Kryostega collinsoni, was Antarctica's top known Triassic predator.

The animal resembled a modern crocodile but was actually a temnospondyl, a prehistoric amphibian that was an early relative of salamanders and frogs. Because of their odd mixture of characteristics, members of this group are sometimes nicknamed 'crocamanders' or 'frogodiles.'"
