They are the world’s oldest biblical manuscripts, yet researchers believe that many Dead Sea Scrolls lie undiscovered.

Although the cave does not hold any scrolls, it contains many hints that it once did, including broken jars and iron pickaxe heads, which suggest looters may have stolen the manuscripts.
