Parts of the world famous Dead Sea Scrolls have been placed online for the first time by Google.
The scrolls were written over 2,000 years ago but weren't discovered again until around 60 years ago. Israel's national museum worked together with Google to place five of the most important scrolls online, including the biblical Book of Isaiah and the Temple Scroll.
Two thousand years after they were written and decades after they were found in desert caves, some of the world-famous Dead Sea Scrolls went online for the first time on Monday in a project launched by Israel's national museum and the web giant Google.
