3,800-year-old baby in a jar unearthed in Israel

Archaeologists in Israel have unearthed a 3,800-year-old jar that contains something surprising — the skeleton of a baby.

Though such infant burials are not so uncommon, it’s a mystery why the infants were buried in this way, said Yoav Arbel, an Israel Antiquities Authority archaeologist who was part of the team that found the jar.
