The Israel Antiquities Authority will be heading up a new search for more Dead Sea Scroll manuscripts, the first major expedition since 1993's 'Operation Scroll' effort, which found no new scrolls at that time. In recent years, ancient manuscripts and fragments have been for sale on the antiquities market, and it is suspected that they were looted from caves near the Dead Sea. The planned expedition will begin in December, and will be a three-year attempt to unearth previously undiscovered Dead Sea scrolls, as well as other artifacts from the Jewish-Roman War (first century) and the Bar Kochba revolt (second century), when many Jewish fighters hid in the desert caves.
