What was in this box before and how was it connected?

The most likely answer is this:
  • Connect one of the black wires in the box to one of the black wires from the dimmer.
  • Connect the other black wire in the box to the other black wire from the dimmer.
  • Connect the two white wires in the box to each other, but not to the dimmer.
  • Connect the two bare wires in the box to the green wire from the dimmer.
