In 1947, a bedouin boy accidentally discovered ancient scrolls dating to about the time of Jesus in cave on the NW shore of the Dead Sea. The remains of over nine hundred different were eventually found in eleven caves in the vicinity, which have come to be called the Dead Sea Scrolls. This slide-illustrated lecture focuses on the archaeology of Qumran, which was excavated by Roland de Vaux in the 1950's, and the connection between the site and the scrolls from the cave. This free lecture will be held in the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History Paleontology Hall.
