This is a site on the Dead Sea called Qumran, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found by a Bedouin tribe member who tossed a stone into cave # 4 above. Well, he heard not just a "clunk" but the distinct sound of breaking pottery! He went up and investigated, and found that his cast stone had broken a clay container containing these precious scrolls. This was in 1947. These scrolls had every book in the Old Testament of the Bible with the exception of the Book of Esther, proving that the transcription of the Bible had been faithful for thousands of years! This is a pan shot, so be sure to use the horizontal bar on your viewer to "scroll horizontally"!
