Tampered evidence? “The Jerusalem Ship” graffito was discovered underneath the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Depending on which theory you prefer, the drawing and inscription were made by a Christian pilgrim in the fourth century A.D., a Jewish visitor to the Temple in the first century A.D. or by a pagan. The authors of the first book under review suggest that the graffito’s restorer made disturbing changes to the artifact.
