In 1947, the imaginations of the scholarly world were staggered by the accidental discovery of some of the most important written materials ever to arise from the sands of the Mediterranean world. Here were books of the Old Testament written in Hebrew that were 1000 years older than the principal texts used in all modern translations. This booklet tells the amazing story of their discovery, what they contributed to cultural and religious studies and why they are on the front pages of newspapers around the world.
