Ancient Greece: Secrets of Long-Lost Temple of Artemis Revealed After 100-Year Search

Archaeologists on the Greek island of Euboea have uncovered a temple dedicated to Artemis, the goddess of hunting and the moon, after a century of searching for the long-lost classical sanctuary dedicated to the ancient deity.

The temple to Artemis at Ephesus, near the modern town of Selcuk in Turkey, was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. It was completely rebuilt three times before its final destruction in 401 A.D. Currently only the foundations of the sanctuary remain.
