The FBI has found a huge cache of thousands of artifacts in a private home in Indiana that rivals the collections found in large museums, according to an article in the Los Angeles Times.

Authorities have erected tents around the house of 91-year-old Donald C. Miller, who has amassed a collection of items from several decades of travel and a dozen countries and Native American tribes.

Some of the items may have been acquired improperly and a number of them are likely to be returned, said FBI Special Agent in Charge Robert Jones.
