News in the World of Antique Art

Those interested in news in the world of antique arts will  want to know about a recent discovery that was uncovered at the ancient city of Myra, near present-day Demre, on the coast of Turkey . The discovery, made six meters below ground level, is the remains of   a Byzantine church that is said to date back to the 12th century.  Unfortunately, the church’s dome has been somewhat damaged over the centuries, but what is quite amazing is that its roof and tiles and the actual structure of the church remain intact.
