Israel, Qumran - Cave 4
Cave 4 was the nearest cave containing documents to the site at Qumran - its only about 500 metres away. Most visitors to Qumran take a picture like this one. But mostly they dont realise that the highly visible cave entrance in their picture is modern, knocked into the side by looters. The ancient entrance to Cave 4 is on the top and well-hidden. Which is perhaps why Cave 4 was found by the local Bedouin, not by Western archaeologists, and why it wasnt discovered until 1952, over five years after the original manuscript finds of 1946/7.
