Early Basilica Found in Bulgaria

This is pretty neat!  I do wish the pictures were not of a shovel and a contemporary Roman Catholic Church.  The Byzantine/Orthodox tradition is much stronger in Bulgaria and more relevant to the article anyhow, which highlights the age of the Basilica as dating to Constantine’s time.  Also, a shovel?  Why not a picture of one of the mosaics?  Anyhow, those who are interested in a little bit about the history of Serdica/Sofia may find this to be of interest:
