In Atlit, northern Israel, a team of archaeologists went to explore a Christian cemetery dating from the 13th century. The first excavations carried out by the British in 1934 led to the discovery of more than 2,000 tombs, providing clues to the current layout of the skeletons. Today, archaeologists are trying to restore the original cemetery in its conditions before the English changed them. Based on the metal objects and ceramics found, archaeologists will be able to learn more about these crusaders and their burial practices.
