Papyrus scrolls dating to the second-century Jewish rebellion against the Romans were discovered in a Judean desert cave. Rappelling into the cave in the Ein Gedi reserve, researchers from the Hebrew University, Bar-Ilan University and Stanford University discovered the scrolls. They also found crude arrowheads and coins bearing the Hebrew name “Shimon,” a reference to the leader of the rebellion against the Roman army, Shimon Bar Kochba.
