Photos from the Cave of Skulls

EXPEDITION UPDATE: In Pictures: Cave of the Skulls, prehistoric Israeli site (Reuters and The Straits Times). Archaeologists from the Israel Antiquities Authority are searching the Cave of the Skulls, an excavation site in the Judean Desert, for remnants of the last Dead Sea Scrolls. The scrolls are important historical and religious documents, and one of the earliest recorded Hebrew texts.

The only new discoveries noted are a tooth and a bone. But watch this space.
