10th Century Cathedral Discovered in Germany

Daily Telegraph: The remains of a 10th century cathedral thought to be built by Otto the Great have been discovered in Madgeburg, Germany. When it was built, the romanesque cathedral of Holy Roman Emperor Otto the Great was the largest north of the Alps with the exception of Cologne. It was said to be very opulent, with Italian marble and glazed wall tiles. Now a crypt and foundation stones being excavated in Magdeburg, Germany may prove to be the long-lost cathedral. The church was begun in 955 and then destroyed by fire in 1207, only to be rebuilt in 1209 as the magnificent Magdeburg Cathedral. If archaeologists are correct, the original church would have been 50 metres to the south.
