1500 year old church

Israeli archaeologists presented a newly uncovered 1,500-year-old church in the Judean hills on Wednesday, including an unusually well-preserved mosaic floor with images of lions, foxes, fish and peacocks.
The church is located southwest of Jerusalem and will be visible only for another week before archaeologists cover it again with soil for its own protection.
The floor is said to be one of the most beautiful mosaics to be uncovered in Israel.
