A temple collapsed at the Panhellenic sanctuary of Nemea, Greece, sometime between 425–400 BCE. Its destruction was left unexamined until 1980, when a team of archaeologists began digging up the foundations of the site. They found heavy deposits of carbon—suggesting a large fire—structural rubble, and bronze and iron weaponry.
