Three Syrian post graduate students in Pázmány Péter Catholic University in Hungary have participated in excavation works to discover a historic church in Balaton Samash site, located south-west of Budapest.

This participation will provide them with good experience to take part in rehabilitation of historic site damaged during the ongoing war on Syria, according to head of the excavation mission in Hungary.

 The site of the church was discovered two years ago and some parts of the church were discovered last year.
