Netributor New Cave Discovered That Could Have Housed Dead Sea Scrolls [
In 1947, shepherds discovered a series of sea scrolls stored in jars in caves in Wadi Qumran near the Dead Sea. Those scrolls, named the Dead Sea Scrolls, provide insight into early Judaism and their discovery launched years of study. Scientists have long believed there could be more scrolls in existence somewhere and they may have just gotten a step closer to finding them.
A team of researchers recently discovered a cave in Israel that they believe once held Dead Sea Scrolls. Unfortunately, these researchers weren’t the first to find the cave. There was evidence that someone else had been there, as well as hints that scrolls may have been hidden there, including broken jars and lids. A leather scrap that could have bound the scrolls, a cloth they could have been wrapped in, and other hints that scrolls likely resided there confirmed the team’s suspicions. There was also a tunnel at the rear of the cave.] - http://tiny.cc/4c2hjy
