In 1897 B.P. Grenfell, Hunt and Hogarth started excavating for papyri in Egypt. At Oxyrhynchus they dug for 13 seasons to 1909. They discovered thousands of Greek texts including fragments of the Gospels, Acts, Pauline Epistles, General Epistles, and Revelation. It was the village dumps where they found baskets full of papyri. So far 3875 documents have been published in the series entitled Oxyrhynchus Papyri.
