Artifact discovered in Israel

There is an interesting article released by the AP about the recent =
discovery of first century burial box which could be the burial box of =
James the Just, brother of Jesus. The Aramaic inscription on the box is =
translated "James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus". The box dates to 63 =
AD, just after the said death of James by Josephus. These type boxes =
were only used by the Jews between 20 BCE and 70CE. The distinct style =
of writing is proper for that period. The box, however, was empty.=20
