Original quarry found under Church of Holy Sepulchre

In the year 326, the Roman Emperor Constantine began construction of a church in Jerusalem on top the remains of his predecessor Hadrian’s temple dedicated to the pagan god Jupiter.

Constantine’s project became the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, traditionally identified as the place where Jesus was crucified and entombed.

During repairs and restorations at the church, archeologists from the University of Rome La Sapienza have now discovered the rock layers of the stone quarry used for its original construction.
