AIA Lecture Series: The Archaeology of Qumran and the Dead Sea Scrolls

Monday, Mar 31 7:00p to 8:30p

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. This lecture focuses on the archaeology of Qumran, which was excavated in the 1950's, and the connection between the site and the scrolls from the cave.
Presenter: Jodi Magness, Ph.D., Department of Religious Studies, University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill
