There is another cave where there were Dead Sea Scrolls. I am not making any commentary on the religious significance or insignificance. I am posting this purely as a news (or perhaps olds) item.

On a side note, newatlas.com. the source of this story, sends me science and technology news feeds on a daily basis. It is a good summary of such highlights.

    One of the interesting things found in the Dead Sea Scrolls were accounts of the Essenes - a sect of Jews that broke off. They even built their own walled retreat some distance away and resisted the Roman army for several weeks before being conquered. What was interesting was that they had a different idea about government than the Romans or the Jews.
