If their conjecture proves correct then their find is indeed a valuable one. Geza died in 997, in the period when the Hungarian state was founded. A team of excavators of the King Stephen Museum directed by Alan Kralovanszky came upon the remains of a quatrefoil church in the yard of the Cathedral, where they expect to find the tomb
