British archeologists unearth what may be an important find in Jordan

A new discovery from 1st century?
Key clues to the life of Jesus Christ may have been uncovered by British archeologists, who are seeking to authenticate 70 lead codices that could have been made during the 1st century CE. The codices were discovered in a remote area of Jordan.

 The wire-bound volumes reportedly contain a number of accounts of the crucifixion and the resurrection. It is being speculated that it is possible these codices may have been in the possession of early Christians who fled during the Roman sack of Jerusalem in 70 CE.

While this discovery could very well have deep meaning, experts are quick to add that such hopes should be suspended pending verification.
