Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulchre over time
« on: 28 November 2017, 16:39:27 »
"Archaeologists have discovered that Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulchre stands on the site of a Jewish cemetery dating to the time of Jesus. The shrine at the heart of the church, known as the Edicule, encases remnants of a tomb revered since the fourth century, imagined here" (to view more than once you may need a subscription, unless you clear your cookies).

"Was this Jesus’ tomb? The evidence is inconclusive, but the site’s layered history holds many clues." This is an interesting National Geographic presentation of a very local site over time.
