…….. English version ……..

Further on the antiquities found beginning of March in Heraklion (see previous post), it is now clear that they found a Byzantine Church and several other buildings build during that era till the acquisition of Crete by the Venetians after 1204 ( here is a brief history of Crete at Wiki)
Now they are going to lower the road and further exploit the antiquities found in the district.
This is a church that no reference was ever made before in any known documents and it was not expected to be there.
Here is a video from the local TV where you can see some of the finding in between talking in Greek.
