Google digitizes the Dead Sea Scrolls Google and the Israel national museum have teamed up to digitize the famous Dead Sea Scrolls.
The scrolls were written over two thousand years ago and were discovered in the 1950s in desert caves.

Five of the 972 scrolls were put online today, including the biblical Book of Isaiah.

Using Google technology, users can search for specific passages and translate them into English.

All of the scrolls are currently at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.

Both teams are working to have all the scrolls available online.
