Excavations for the new Church Museum in Aksum started in December 2010. The old Cathedral, built on Aksumite foundations, can be seen in the top left of the picture. The small treasury building that houses the Ark of the Covenant is next door. To the right of this building, just behind the stone wall in the centre of the picture, are old archaeological excavations that exposed the foundations of Aksumite buildings.
