Another ancient crypt next to the altar shows examples of animal sacrifice during that era

Another ancient crypt next to the altar shows examples of animal sacrifice during that era. This would be during the Middle Ages, say during the 3rd and 4th century BC. Yes, I did say BC. A crypt is an underground burial chamber in a church and there were several of them inside and outside of the Church of Kish. Most have been covered with plexi-glass to prevent debris from falling inside or to prevent the sacred remains from crazy humans and their trash. Of course, the question of debris would not arise in this crypt inside the church, but trash probably yes. Or at least people throwing coins and currency inside the crypt. Detailed notes about the Church of Kish appeared in previous captions earlier in this album. (Sheki, Azerbaijan, Sept. 2017)
