Cave 3, the most northerly of the Qumran caves and the place where the Copper Scroll was found, lies nearly 1.5 miles north of Qumran. In early 1952, an expedition by the Ecole Biblique et Archeologique Francaise and the American School of Oriental Research in Jerusalem searched for additional scrolls in more than 200 caves and clefts along a five-mile line of cliffs centered on Qumran (compare with next photo).
