About a year ago, Google scanned five manuscripts of the Dead Sea Scrolls, which are ancient documents that include the oldest known biblical manuscripts that exist. The Scrolls were written over 2,000 years ago on parchment and papyrus, preserved in a hot and dry desert climate, hidden within deep caves. The Scrolls are considered one of the most important archaeological discoveries of the 20th century. Google is working with the Israel Antiquities Authority to launch the Leon Levy Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Library.
