Gate to Hell, Part II

Back in April I published the post, Gate to Hell, which discusses the ancient cave that had been recently discovered in southwestern Turkey. The cave emitted carbon dioxide fumes (and still does) and was celebrated as the portal to the underworld in Greco-Roman times.

Archaeologists have further excavated the site within the last seven months and Discovery News has published new images from the excavation. (That I am stealing)
