Several blogs and other online venues have more information about the book The Jesus Discovery and what it is that that book has to say about possibly Christian ossuaries found in the Talpiot neighborhood of Jerusalem, near the “Talpiot Tomb” that made headlines a few years ago.

James Tabor has a report with photos about the discovered ossuaries in The Bible and Interpretation. There is also a press release from UNC Charlotte.
