Archaeologists have begun excavation work on the site of the Christian Cathedral of St Nicholas’ Circle in Leicester, England.
According to scientists, for the first time, the Roman temple was found in the nineteenth century. It is extremely rare for Christians to build a religious tabernacle on the site of a former pagan temple.
Scientists hope that the excavations will allow us to get to know the Roman temple, which was dedicated to the god Mithra and existed even in the 4th century CE.
The excavation is part of the £ 11.3 million project ‘Leicester Cathedral Revealed’.
