Israeli archaeologists say they have uncovered a 1,500-year-old church, including an unusually well-preserved mosaic floor with images of lions, foxes, fish and peacocks. Amir Ganor of the Israel Antiquities Authority says the church in the hills southwest of Jerusalem was active between the fifth and seventh centuries A.D. Read more:

That is pretty much the whole article, but take a read.

Great find! Star and Flag!
The article said the Mosaic floor is unique in design. I would love to see some images. Too bad it's being covered up again due to lack of funding.

Just enough to get our curiosity pipped. I agree with Wardwolf pics would be sweet. Maybe at some point more will be done at the site.

Here's a link with some pics

It says that initially they thought it was a synagogue but upon further excavation it was revealed to be a Church. I bet if it were a synagogue it would have funding.

Can you imagine the time and effort that went in to creating the tiles? Let alone the actual mosaic.

It's not too complicated to embed.
Just right click the image, save as a Jpeg to a folder on your hard drive.
Then go to your photos on ATS and upload the image.
Click the image and there will be 3 different options: Avatar, Background and Embed.
Copy the embed code and paste it to your post.
Nah that's not complicated at all. ha ha
