Destroyed by earthquakes, eroision and warfare, the ancient city of Sardis was leveled and buried. A joint venture between Harvard and Cornell Universities, sponsored by the American School of Oriental Research, the Harvard-Cornell Expedition was formed, and in 1958 began their search for the buried city of Sardis. Included in their finds, was a synagogue, believed to have been constructed in the third century AD, with floors mostly covered with mosaics (glass is not mentioned). Other artifacts include marble, and pottery. There is a slight mention of crystal jewelry found in one of the tombs unearthed on this expedition. Important finds from the Sardis excavations including the mosaics, are on display in the Museum of Manisa.
