Byzantine Monastery Discovered in Israel

Farmers digging in a field uncovered a hidden treasure. Sounds familiar for some reason…

A team led by Daniel Ein Mor barely had to scratch the surface before finding the remains of a Byzantine monastery, he told CNN on Wednesday.

“The excavation at Nes-Harim supplements our knowledge about the nature of the Christian-Byzantine settlement in the rural areas between the main cities in this part of the country during the Byzantine period,” including Jerusalem, Mor said.

I can’t believe I scooped Aquilina on this! 🙂
