The Bone Boxes of Wheaton College

My friend Lin Johnson alerted me to the archaeological display on the fifth floor of the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College, which contains a couple fine examples of ossuaries, or "bone boxes," from the Second Temple period in Israel.

As the author of the novel, The Bone Box, I have a lively interest in these artifacts, so I made my way to the fifth floor today to see them (and to scout out the location of one of my classrooms for tomorrow's teaching).

They're good ones. And they are just a part of an extensive and absorbing display.
