The Dead Sea Scrolls are a collection of 981 texts discovered between 1946 and 1956 in the Qumran Caves  in the West Bank. They were found inside caves about a mile inland from the northwest shore of the Dead Sea, from which they derive their name. Nine of the scrolls were rediscovered at the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) in 2014, after they had been stored unopened for six decades following their excavation in 1952.
