Article Photos: The Dead Sea Scrolls at a glance 1/3

An Israel Antiquities Authority employee works on fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls in Jerusalem on Friday, May 10, 2013. Written mostly on animal skin parchment about 2,000 years ago, the manuscripts are the earliest copies of the Hebrew Bible ever found, and the oldest written evidence of the roots of Judaism and Christianity in the Holy Land.
