Ancient Bronze Age Tomb was discovered in a house near the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. In the manner of most archaeological finds, it was discovered during renovations, by accident. Stephen Pfann commented on the tomb as “an important reference to the life of the Canaanites...” According to the article, the finds will be housed in the Bethlehem Peace Center (seen here [the site seems to be having some problems]).
