Interesting news: the skeletal remains of the Apostle Paul may have been found in a tomb beneath the Basilica of St. Paul. Oral tradition had named this church as the site of Paul's tomb; now carbon dating has confirmed that the bones are from the appropriate time period.
A.N. Wilson's article (linked above) is a bit melodramatic and relies heavily on the chronology of Acts to reconstruct Paul's life. I tend to agree with Garry Wills that Acts is not a very reliable guide, and that Paul's letters, considered apart from Acts, tell a somewhat different story.
The discovery lends credence to the tradition that Paul was martyred in Rome during the anti-Christian backlash following the great fire that destroyed most of the city. The emperor Nero blamed Christians in order to counter rumors that he'd started the fire himself.
Incidentally, this event is the origin of the expression, "Nero fiddled while Rome burned." Nero fancied himself a great actor, singer, and master of a stringed instrument called a cithara. Though it is doubtful that he actually played the cithara while the city burned, people did resent his obsession with entering theatrical competitions instead of attending to his job.
Back to the article: Another point of interest is the possibility that a fresco found on the walls of the catacombs may be an accurate likeness of Paul. The linked article has a couple of photos of this fresco, which seems to be in good condition. (Note that the first photo does not show the fresco in question; it is seen in the two that follow.)
