Ancient rooms have been unearthed at a pilgrimage site in Rome, Italy.

New rooms have been discovered in the domus (house) of Empress St. Helena, the mother of the Roman Emperor Constantine the Great, in the bowels of the basilica of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme in Rome, officials said Friday.

“These are nothing less than the living quarters of Helen’s court ladies,” said superintendent Francesco Prosperetti.

“We have shed more light on the main entrance into the domus and better established the divisions between the various rooms,” said archaeologist Anna De Santis.
