Four more Byzantine-era tombs were found in Jedia. They, too, contained bracelets, coins and bronze shards. Skeletal remains of a 20-year-old man were found in yet another Roman tomb unearthed in Selmine.
In a continuing excavation of the Nabataean Cathedral in Bosra, a French team has unearthed remains of a private bath in Trajan's Palace.
I'm afraid the article in DNA did not include any images of the artifacts recovered.
