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.

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. Cheesy

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

Although I thought they'd already found a church.
