The Israeli Antiquities Authority has unveiled 11 ancient burial boxes that were recovered after the Israeli police spotted a suspicious night-time transaction last week. Officials said the boxes, which contain bone fragments and remnants of pottery buried with the deceased, are 2,000 years old. Some are engraved with designs and even names, giving clues to their origin and contents.
