Dozens of workers were busy covering old Sidon's Freres archaeological site Monday, to protect a major new discovery unearthed by a delegation from the British Museum.The newly discovered monumental room is believed to be an extension of the underground Temple of Sidon, which dates back to the Bronze Age.Construction of the museum led to urgent excavations at the site last month.The newly discovered room was found adjacent to it, and is thought to be an extension of the site's temple.The room's walls were constructed with monumental stones to a height of 4.5 meters, while the floor of subterranean room would have been 7.5 meters below street level.The museum will be designed to preserve the site's archaeological ruins in situ.
