They find the ruins of a Byzantine church in the ancient city of Adramytteion

The ruins of an 800-year-old church have been unearthed in the ancient Greek city of Adramytteion, in Turkey. The find was made just two weeks before the completion of this year's seasonal work.

Murat Özgen, director of the North Aegean Research and Application Center, said excavations in the city have been continuous since 2012.

«This year the excavations have continued in a field on Ören hill, which we call 'Region C'. A large church dating from the 11th century was found during excavations between 2000 and 2006. During the works two years ago we found the apse of the church«.

«We knew that in the 11th century it had been destroyed and this last church found confirms that knowledge. We now have two weeks to finish the works here«, Özgen finished.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
