Archaeologists during excavations found on the legendary Jewish rock, the Dead sea scrolls, full of jars for storing Antiques. It was the first time in 60 years.
The discovery negates the old theory in the archaeological community that the Dead sea Scrolls were discovered in some caves on the cliffs of Qumran, which belong to Israel in the West Bank. "Still have not accepted that the Dead sea scrolls were discovered in 11 caves in Qumran, but now there is no doubt that this is a 12-cave," said Dr. Oren Gutfeld.
After working with a small pick, the team made a monumental discovery: found jar storage with a scroll. The Bank was taken to the conservation laboratory at the Hebrew University, where has been opened in a protected environment.
After that, scientists soon discovered a cave where there was a tunnel about 16-20 feet in length. "At some point in the tunnel, we found some broken jars storage with lid," said Gutfeld. The team also found a fabric covering and a leather strap linking the scrolls jars. The team thinks that the looters looted the cave circa 1950-ies, pointing to picks left in the tunnel as evidence.
It is probably only the first in a series of discoveries of the Qumran manuscripts, said Gutfeld
