The missing bones of Santa Claus may have been discovered in Turkey

The missing bones of Santa Claus may have been discovered in Turkey”

It is in the province of Antalya that archaeologists have accumulated clues that suggest that it is the tomb of the christian saint of the Fourth century, enclosed in a church.

A recent discovery of a tomb in the Church of St Nicholas in Demre, Antalya is believed to be that of St Nicholas - the man, the mystery and the legend that created Santa Claus.

For a long time his bones were thought to have been stolen, but now some archaeologists have found a temple underneath the church and they believe that's where the remains of Saint Nicholas are buried.

"We have obtained very good results but the real work starts now".

Archeologists have discovered a tomb underneath Saint Nicholas Church in Turkey.

Earlier it was thought that the body of Saint Nicholas was transferred to Bari in Italy by sailors after the fall of the Byzantine empire before Muslims in the first Crusade, almost 700 years after St. Nicholas' birth. "The document also says that the bones that were taken to Bari were actually of some priest".

Stories of the Saint helping people and giving to the poor spread across the globe until he became intertwined with the gift-giving, Christmas icon of Santa Claus.

"We're going to dig at this place and maybe we will discover the remains untouched from Saint Nicholas", said Cemil Karabayram to Ouest-France.

Scholars will now access the temple beneath the church to determine if the body belongs to Saint Nicholas.
