Summary
Nearly 2000 years ago, a dark, inhospitable cave located in a canyon near the Dead Sea was a secret hideout for Jewish refugees fleeing for their lives from the oppressive rule of the Roman Empire. In 1960, archaeologists discovered dramatic letters written by Bar-Kokhba, the heroic Jewish rebel who led a guerilla uprising aagainst the Romans. Could the cave conceal more historic treasure from that desperate time? Armed with high-tech equipment, a new team led by archaeologist Richard Freund returns to explore a place that has intrigued the experts for decades
