A new, mile-long Dead Sea cave

GEOGRAPHY: World’s Longest Marlstone Cave Discovered in Israel Near Dead Sea (TPS / Tazpit News Agency via the Jewish Press).

There's no report of any scrolls in this cave. But apparently there are lots of such caves and they develop and go away and open and close over time. I don't know what prospects there are for finding ancient artifacts in these caves. Maybe not many. But let's keep an eye on this project just in case.
