Ruins of medieval church unearthed in Switzerland

The remains of a medieval church have been discovered under the town of Moutier in canton Bern. The centrepiece of the ruins is a 66cm-wide wall and part of a rounded apse. Another room and a fitting that could be the foundation of an altar were also uncovered. Archaeologists said the shape of the wall clearly suggested it had been a church.

Judging from the ruins, the former church was estimated to be 6.5 metres wide and seven metres long. A wooden building was also found on the site.
