                                                Archaeologists have found a 2,700-year-old temple which contains objects from across the ancient world. Gold and silver figures, jewellery and shells from throughout the Mediterranean were gathered in one place on the small Greek island of Kithnos in the Aegean Sea.

The finds suggest the temple was for a female god. Many of the objects were originally from Egypt, Italy and Phoenicia which is now Lebanon and Israel.

The ancient city was founded during the 10th century BC and abandoned four centuries later, said Alexander Mazarakis-Ainian, overseeing the dig. He is an associate professor at the University of Thessalia in Larissa in central Greece.
