The Telegraph says that it was found during electronic surveys that showed gaps beneath the church.

The tomb will take some time to get to as the archaeologists will have to scale each floor tile one by one and remove them as a whole.

The Turkish researchers believe that an old grave that was believed to hold the remains of St. Nick, actually contains the bones of the wrong man.

The excavation leader was stunned at the find and says that the new tomb could boost tourism for the area.
