Dead Sea Scrolls Like Discovery?

Five years ago, approximately 70 small books with metal pages bound with metal rings were discovered in Jordan. Since then, they've been the subject of intense study. They apparently are looking more and more authentic as they are examined. The metallic books appear to be about 2000 years old and could provide first hand accounts of early Christians many believe fled to Jordan after the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD. Some have speculated that the could be the codices described in the Book of Revelation.

Via the Daily Mail:
On pages not much bigger than a credit card, are images, symbols and words that appear to refer to the Messiah and, possibly even, to the Crucifixion and Resurrection.

Adding to the intrigue, many of the books are sealed, prompting academics to speculate they are actually the lost collection of codices mentioned in the Bible’s Book Of Revelation.

The books were discovered five years ago in a cave in a remote part of Jordan to which Christian refugees are known to have fled after the fall of Jerusalem in 70AD. Important documents from the same period have previously been found there.
Initial metallurgical tests indicate that some of the books could date from the first century AD.

This estimate is based on the form of corrosion which has taken place, which experts believe would be impossible to achieve artificially.
If the dating is verified, the books would be among the earliest Christian documents, predating the writings of St Paul.

The prospect that they could contain contemporary accounts of the final years of Jesus’s life has excited scholars – although their enthusiasm is tempered by the fact that experts have previously been fooled by sophisticated fakes.
