"They unearthed a stone chest containing the cross fragment along with the skeletons of 1000 people." I would suggest that the actual chest was the big item here. The "cross" ... well, it's really just a piece of wood. It could have come from Jesus's ping-pong table or maybe it was a piece of a wooden hat from when wooden hats were the fashion. It's really impossible to tell at this great a remove (and in the case of the hat, without a label). One thing's for sure, though, any chest big enough for that piece of wood AND the skellingtons of 1000 people is enough to make Dolly Parton look like an amateur (kyuck, kyuck).
