Byzantine era artifacts on display in Israel (10 images)

Ancient Byzantine era artifacts, unearthed last June in a village west of Jerusalem, are on display by the Israel Antiquities Authority in Beit Shemesh. The items offer a window to life in Holy Land during the time of Jesus, a period during the first centuries AD, as Christianity first began to spread.
