In 1946, inside a cave just a short distance from the Dead Sea, a boy from the Bedouin tribe of Tamara discovered ceramic pots. These pots housed the first of the 700 ancient manuscripts now referred to as the Dead Sea Scrolls. The first scrolls were brought to Jerusalem by Professor Eleazar Sukenik, while a Christian priest smuggled the others to the United States until their return in 1954. Members of the Bedouin tribe discovered ten of the eleven sites on which these scrolls were found.
