Researchers in Israel say they have discovered the first new fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls for six decades, with the new artefacts dating back to the 2nd century.

The Israel Antiques Authority (IAA) announced on Tuesday that fragments of a scroll had been found in a cave in the Judean Desert. The discovery came during a several-year-long survey of all the caves in the area, carried out by the IAA.

The Dead Sea Scrolls are among the earliest texts written in the Hebrew language and are 2,000 years old. Some two dozen have been newly discovered during a daring rescue operation.

The scrolls housed at Washington DC's Museum of the Bible were found to be fake last year. Nat Geo

The majority of the real Dead Sea Scrolls are in Jerusalem's Shrine of the Book Museum.  The rest are in Jordan. Wikipedia

Archaeologists have discovered the 6,000-year-old skeleton of a child in the “Cave of Horrors” in Israel's Judaean Desert, alongside ancient Dead Sea scrolls and the world's ‘oldest basket’.

The “Cave of Horrors” takes its name from the 40 skeletons found there during excavations in the 1960s. Researchers found the child's remains preserved naturally mummified in the dry atmosphere of the cave, which can only be accessed by climbing ropes.
