Byzantine font is discovered at Nativity Church in Palestine

The font (top right) was found during restoration work to existing baptismal font in the southern corridor of the southern wing of the church, located six miles (10 km) outside of Jerusalem (bottom right). Experts say the find – thought to date to between 501 and 600 AD – will provide them with further insights about the traditional birthplace of Jesus. An international ceremony (bottom left) had been planned to coincide with the end of the restoration work in November this year. This has now been postponed until May of next year or early June.
