Recently published in the Times of Israel is a report on the dig just completed in Israel by Randall Price and Oren Gutfeld of Cave 52.  The 2017 Dig was of Cave 53, which is considered to have been a Dead Sea scroll cave after the broken and robbed jars that were discovered there.  Cave 52 was nearby, and at a higher elevation, leading to the belief that they were also used for scroll storage. (Picture above from 2017 dig).
