4,000 Year-old Temple Discovered....

Perhaps one of the oldest known religious sites was discovered recently--a temple dating back to antiquity.

From the MSNBC article:
NICOSIA, Cyprus - An Italian archaeologist claimed Friday to have discovered Cyprus' oldest religious site, which she said echoes descriptions in the Bible of temples in ancient Palestine.

Maria Rosaria Belgiorno said the 4,000-year-old triangular temple predates any other found on the east Mediterranean island by a millennium.
