Archaeologists working in an ancient church in Turkey think they have found a piece of the cross used to crucify Jesus Christ.

They found a stone chest during excavation at a 1,350-year-old church, and the chest had a number of relics inside believed to be associated with the crucifixion, a historian at Turkey's Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts tells the Hurriyet Daily News.

NBC News - "We have found a holy thing in a chest," a historian says. "It is a piece of a cross,"

As you can imagine, there are quite a few tests being done at the moment on this piece of cross. We'll let you know when we hear something.
