Dead Sea Scroll fragments thought to be blank reveal text
quote [ There are only a few on each fragment, but they are like missing pieces of a jigsaw puzzle you find under a sofa. ]

Also, I recall reading a couple of years ago that there was hope that the use of new scanning tech might reveal what used to be written on old parchment and vellum that had been cleaned or scoured for reuse. It would be pretty awesome if we could find some lost manuscripts written under what the documents hold now. I don't know if anything has really come of that yet.
