New artifacts discovered in the Gaza Strip give researchers more clues to what Christian churches looked like during the Byzantine period. 

The remains of a 1,500-year-old church were uncovered in the Gaza Strip over the weekend by construction workers preparing ground for a new shopping mall...

Fifteen pieces were discovered, including segments of marble pillars with Corinthian capitals, one of which is nearly three meters long. A 90-cm foundation stone bearing the Greek symbol for “Christ” was also found at the site located in Palestine Square in downtown Gaza City.
