Nine new Dead Sea Scrolls

Haha Sounds better than it actually is
Nine new found penny-sized pieces of parchment belonging to the Dead Sea Scrolls laid unopened for nearly six decades before they were rediscovered in Israel.
Once opened, the minuscule phylactery parchments from Qumran, while unlikely to yield any shattering historic, linguistic or religious breakthroughs, could shed new light on the religious practices of Second Temple Judaism.
Never-the-less it is fascinating, and just think of what you adventurers could find in old caves or museum shelves for that matter.
