Holy Sepulchre Church: Discovery at ‘Jesus’s tomb’ in Jerusalem

The church built on the spot where tradition has it that Jesus was buried has reopened after extensive renovation work.

The slabs have now been dated to Crusader times and to the 4th Century, when the Roman Emperor Constantine built the church.
