That’s a good hiding place for he scrolls. Amongst the food storage, I assume in other, similar, jars. But wht did they hide them at all? The bible wasen’t being collected and put together until 400’s AD. Who were they hiding the scrolls from?

--Still learning--

There were already religious zealots who were trying to unify Christianity.
See "Irenaeus".

More about the life of Jesus? About the life of the Essene fundamentalists maybe...

It's fine if anyone takes it, and it's better in the hands of some anonymous looter if he treats it well, rather than in the field of modern science, which is the nihilistic morally-relativistic cult of oligarchic truth-twisting dogmatists with corncobs shoved up their butts.

Portions of the Nag Hammadi library were used as fuel for the finder's mother's fire.

Academics and religionists are all guilty.

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
