One of the most important archeological finds of the modern era the Dead Sea Scrolls are a series of 30,000 fragments of 900 manuscripts containing texts from the time of Jesus.
Sixty years after they were discovered in a cave by a Bedouin shepherd in the West Bank, the Dead Sea Scrolls have been given a new lease of life and will be put online in a new digitized format by the Israel Antiquities Authority and Google.
