The scientists believe that they may find the untouched body of Saint Nicholas once the body is uncovered. While the process will take some time, the discovery is already turning heads in the area. While the current grave of Saint Nicholas was believed to be in Bari’s Basilica di San Nicola, the Turkish archaeologists claimed that the tomb that has been visited by many actually belonged to a local priest.
