Caption: Byzantine mosaic excavations. Archaeologists cleaning and restoring Byzantine mosaics in the ancient city of Edessa in what is now Sanliurfa, Turkey. These mosaics were uncovered at an archaeological site in the Haleplibahce district of the city. They date from the 5th and 6th centuries, when the city was under Byzantine rule, and the palace in which these mosaics were found is thought to have belonged to a high-ranking administrator of the Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantium). Photographed in 2009.
