Google posting the complete Dead Sea Scrolls online, historians drool

Many commoners like you and me won’t even be ticked by the slightest of this news, because we all floated our history test back in high school. But for those amateur historians and Aramaic language speakers, this should be something you would love to know. It seemed that Google has knotted a deal with the Israeli Antiquities Authority to scan the complete Dead Sea Scrolls using multi-spectral imaging technology developed by NASA, and place them online for your reading pleasure.

Indeed, not only will the hi-res imaging place the scrolls in the digital domain, it might also uncover new letters and words previously unseen when the things were photographed using infrared tech in the 1950s. Alongside the online database of the text, Google plans to include translations and other related documents. You can look forward to seeing the first images become available in the next couple months, with the project taking five years or so to complete.
