Fragments of an ancient manuscript found in an Irish bog are being hailed as comparable to the Dead Sea Scrolls.
The discovery of the Psalter, or Book of Psalms, in the south Midlands is said to be one of the most significant discoveries in archaeology for decades.
National Museum of Ireland specialists believe the manuscript may have been lost in transit or dumped after a raid - possibly up to 1,200 years ago.
Museum director Dr Pat Wallace said it was "remarkably well preserved".
