Archaeology: Fragment of 13th C mural showing St Peter found at Plovdiv’s Great Basilica site
Archaeologists working at the site of the Great Basilica in Plovdiv, the largest early Christian church found on the Balkans, have uncovered a fragment of a mediaeval mural believed to depict St Peter.
The fragment is estimated to date to the 13th to 14th centuries.
It was found in the hitherto unexamined northern nave, not far from the city’s Roman Catholic church close to the intersection of Maria Louisa and Tsar Boris III boulevards.
