#TheHistoryHeretic Reports: Tomb of Jesus Reopens, Burial Place Uncovered For The First Time In Centuries #JovanHuttonPulitzer 

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre has announced the completion of its extensive renovations to the tomb of Jesus.

The religious site in Jerusalem has been under reconstruction since May 2016 but work finally came to an end on 20 March.The project was carried out by a team of Greek specialists who reconstructed the Edicule — the protective structure over the shelf on which the body of Christ is said to have rested following his crucifixtion.

The covering had been supported by metal beams since an early 20th century earthquake and required reconstruction. It included restoration and cleaning of the structure and led to the discovery of its original details.
