Ancient 'Secret Church' Discovered in Former ISIS-Held Territory in Syria

Archaeologists in Syria have discovered the remains of a ‘secret church’ that may date back to the first centuries of Christianity, hiding in plain sight in a territory held by ISIS for more than two years.

It’s thought that the ancient tunnel system found in Manbij once served as a refuge for Christians who faced persecution during the Roman Empire.
Beside a mound used to dump trash, researchers found the remains of a sprawling tunnel system containing escape routes, hidden doors, Greek inscriptions, and a makeshift altar – with crosses and Christian symbols etched all throughout.

It even contains a graveyard that was likely used for the church clergy, with human remains found inside large stone tombs.
