All 16 Dead Sea Scroll fragments in DC museum are clever fakes

All 16 of the Dead Sea Scroll fragments at the Museum of the Bible in Washington, DC are cunning forgeries, independent researchers have confirmed.

“We’re victims,” the museum’s CEO, Harry Hargrave, said Friday in announcing the forgery finding.

“We’re victims of misrepresentation, we’re victims of fraud.”

The crumbly brown fragments had been among the most prized exhibits at the museum; some of them had been billed as scraps of the oldest known surviving copies of the Hebrew bible.
