    My brother, an ancient historian and archaeologist specializing in the
    Middle East, saw the "James" ossuary in Toronto last month. He believes
    "the same hand did the inscription. Not based on letter forms, but on the
    tool used to carve it and the depth of the letters. If it is a fake, who
    benefits? if it was an ancient fake, then it would have been placed in a
    reliquary and a church built over it. If a modern fake, it would have sold
    for more than $300!"

    This hardly proves that it came from the tomb of the biblical James, but
    the possibility is an obvious one.
