Excavations on Bulgaria’s St Ivan island a success – report

The new archaeological excavations on the island of Saint Ivan close to the seaside town of Sozopol are successful, Tsonya Drazheva, deputy head of the archaeology excavations, said.
Quoted by local news agency Focus, she said that the team’s priority this year was to unearth the remaining part of the earliest Christian church where the relics said to be those of John the Baptist were discovered in 2010.

"We have started examining the narthex of the church. As you might know, in early Christianity churches were very big and there were no closed areas," Drazheva was quoted as saying.
