Traces of a 1,200-year-old church have been found built into part of the Old Cathedral in Mainz, which itself dates back 1,000 years.

In the so-called “Old Cathedral” in Mainz, which is today the evangelical Church of St John, archaeologists found the remains of another church built 1,200 years ago in the time of Charlemagne, Deacon Andreas Klodt said on Tuesday.

Only Trier on the Mosel River has an older church, with its cathedral dating back to Roman times, making the find the second oldest church in the country.
