Constantinian basilica found in Bulgaria

The discovery of a 4th century basilica in Sofia, Bulgaria leads experts to speculate that emperor Constantine the Great might have had plans to create a centre of Christianity in the area.

The remains of the structure, 27 metres wide and about 100m long, were found in the area of the West Gate of Serdica, as the city was known in Roman times. City officials are considering plans for a park where residents and tourists may view the discoveries at the archaeological site.
