AIA lecture series: The Archaeology of Qumran and the Dead Sea Scrolls

In 1947, a Bedouin boy accidentally discovered ancient scrolls, dating to about the time of Jesus, in a cave on the northwest shore of the Dead Sea. The remains of over 900 different scrolls were eventually found in 11 caves in the vicinity, which have come to be called the Dead Sea Scrolls. These scrolls include Biblical books, related Biblical works, and literature describing the beliefs and practice of the Jewish sect that deposited the scrolls in the caves.
