Archaeologists in Israel have uncovered ancient text on a 1,500-year-old piece of charred parchment. By using advanced digital imagery, the scientists exposed the hidden writing, which isn’t visible to the naked eye. Discovered 45 years ago, the Hebrew Scroll is believed to contain the first eight versus of the Bible’s Old Testament book of Leviticus.
