University of Nebraska–Lincoln archaeological team unearths giant Roman mosaic in southern Turkey. The mosaic is near a third-century imperial temple in the city of Antiochia ad Cragum, also known as Antiochetta (small Antiochia), near Antalya. An overhead perspective of the roughly 40 percent of the mosaic uncovered so far. Researchers expect its total area to be about 1,600 square feet when fully unearthed in the summer of 2013
