      In part,

      The archaeological mystery has been solved! The latest research shows
      that the manuscript found by Polish archaeologists in the village of
      Gourna (Sheikh abd el-Gourna) near Luxor in Upper Egypt contains the
      entire biblical book of Isaiah in the Coptic translation. “This is the
      first complete translation of this book in Coptic” – says Prof. Ewa
      Wipszycka-Bravo of the Institute of Archaeology at Warsaw University.
      In February last year, Tomasz Górecki heading the Centre of
      Mediterranean Archaeology at the Warsaw University mission in Gourna,
      made a unique find in the rubbish heap of a monastery. It consisted of
      two papyrus books in leather covers and a collection of parchment sheets
      bound by two bits of wood. This was the first discovery of Coptic
      manuscripts in Egypt since 1952, which are well preserved and supported
      by a well-researched archaeological context.


      And apologies if this has been mentioned and I missed it.
