Centuries-old church unearthed in Turkey
« on: May 22, 2011, 01:56:57 PM »
A church which dates to the early Fourth Century has been dug up by archaeologists in Leodicea, Turkey.

From the article:
Quote
The head of expedition, Celal Simsek thinks that the church was built in AD 313 after the edict of Milan.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

IIRC when I visited Turkey a couple years ago Laodicea was a Tell. Good to know they're developing the site.

Assuming I'm not confusing it with another site. :D

I was mistaken on the site. It isn't a tell.

Although I thought they'd already found a church.
