IAA has Easter show

AT BEIT SHEMESH: Finds from the time of Jesus. Israeli artifacts provide clues to Christ's life (Daniel Estrin, AP). Easter is the excuse for this IAA warehouse exhibition for journalists, but it did seem to have some interesting items on display. For the ossuary of the granddaughter of Caiaphas, see here and here. And for background on the crucified man skeleton, see here and links.

NOTE: this post has been corrected to indicate the correct relationship of Miriam to Caiaphas.
