A collection of supposedly valuable Dead Sea Scroll fragments on display at the Museum of the Bible in Washington DC has been found to be fake.

After six months of analysis, experts released a 200-page report detailing how the fragments were forged - likely made from old shoe leather.

"Each exhibits characteristics that suggest they are deliberate forgeries," the analysts said in a statement.
