Tourist Uncovers Hidden Treasure in Holy Land

Breaking News

Israeli archaeologists said they have unearthed more than 250 gold coins from the seventh century on the edge of Jerusalem's walled Old City.

A British tourist volunteering at the dig discovered the trove on Sunday.

Israel's Antiquities Authority said the Byzantine-period hoard was found in the ruins of a building where a striking 2,000-year-old gold earring from the Roman era was dug up last month.
