Fourth century church ruins discovered in Syria

It is always interesting to read about the history of Christianity in the Middle East, especially in what are now Muslim countries. BBC tells of another ancient church recently discovered at Palmyra, Syria dating to the fourth or fifth century. Apparently it was quite a large building although they do not estimate how many people would have gathered there. Its “base measures 12m by 24m (39′ by 79′) with 6m-high (20′) columns.” If we are very blessed they will find some perfectly preserved Bibles buried under the ruins.
