For centuries, there has been a debate over where his remains truly lie, with many believing graverobbers relocated them to a holy site in the Italian city of Bari. However, experts maintain that the bones there are actually of a different priest, not St. Nick. And now, archaeologists surveying the Church of St. Nicholas in Demre (formerly Myra), Turkey, are convinced that a well-preserved shrine they discovered beneath it is where he's actually been entombed since he died in 343 A.D.
At the moment, the team of surveyors haven't been able to confirm their theory, since accessing the shrine is proving difficult. But, according to the BBC, they've brought in the figurative big guns -- a CT scan, geo-radar and eight academics -- to push through the final stages.
