A reader sent me a link to an article at The Mail about a newly discovered mosaic floor of a 1500 year-old Byzantine church some 30 miles south of Tel Aviv, Israel.
There are lots of photos available, but here is one to whet the old appetite.
There are all sorts of critters in these mosaics. The floor must have been spectacular.
And to think that some people have to endure carpet in their churches. O the black grief of the world.
