After 60 Years, Archaeologists Find New Dead Sea Scrolls Cave !!!

Ever since Bedouin shepherds stumbled on the first fragments hidden in caves in the Judean desert back in the late 1940s, the Dead Sea Scrolls have ranked among the greatest archaeological finds of the past century. A collection of nearly 1,000 Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic manuscripts dating back to the fourth century B.C., the scrolls included the earliest surviving written fragments of the Hebrew Bible. Last week, an excavation led by Hebrew University and the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) announced the discovery of a new scroll-related cave at Qumran, in the West Bank—the 12th, to be exact, and the first to be successfully excavated in more than 60 years.
