Biblical fragments found the Judean Desert

Here is an article about a discovery of Biblical fragments from the book of Leviticus, found in the Judean desert in "refugee" caves where Jews hid from the Romans in the 2nd century AD. Found on animal skins, they are being tested for their validity, since some recent "artifacts" have been proven as modern forgeries. If they are indeed authentic, it will further prove the passing on of Biblical text in its pure form over the years, since scribes were required to start a whole scroll over if they made one mistake.
