In the mid-1940s, in caves on the shores of the Dead Sea, Bedouin shepherds discovered clay pots which contained ancient manuscripts. Eventually over 15,000 fragments of ancient Hebrew writings on papyrus and leather were retrieved. Scholars pieced the fragments together to create over 800 discrete books, which date from 200 bc to 1000 ad, making them the earliest existent biblical manuscripts. The texts make up the majority of the Tanakh, or Hebrew Bible, and shed light on Judaism and early Christianity.
