Tomb of Saint Nicholas Uncovered in Turkey
How will they break it to Rudolph? Turkish archaeologists believe they’ve found the tomb of Saint Nicholas — better known to Americans as Santa Claus — far from the North Pole, buried under an ancient church in the coastal region of Antalya. Researchers hope to access the fourth-century bishop’s remains, previously thought to have been smuggled to Italy, but it could take a while to disassemble the tomb without damaging it. The high-profile find could be a boon for local tourism, as long as kids don’t connect the dots.
