title : 12th Dead Sea Scrolls' Cave Found in Israel, 'Best Discovery in 60 Years'
summary : Evidence of a 12th cave related to the Dead Sea scrolls was found this week by Hebrew University of Jerusalem researchers. Archeologists, including Oren Gutfeld and Ahiad Ovadia from the university's Institute of Archeology -- aided by Randall Price and students of Liberty University in Virginia -- are the first people in more than 60 years to have discovered a new scroll cave.
