A scroll being conserved in the IAA laboratory

Researchers from all over the world and experts in many fields of knowledge, including archaeology and other sciences, gathered in Jerusalem to discuss different aspects of the Judean Desert where the Dead Sea Scrolls were unearthed, both as the physical site of desert communities and as the symbolic place where biblical events and stories were set.

Pnina Shor, curator and head of the Dead Sea Scrolls Project at the Israel Antiquities Authority said, “On the 70th anniversary of the discovery of the scrolls, we can state with satisfaction that we are working not only to preserve the scrolls for future generations, but are also making them accessible through the most advanced means in the world to both the public and scholars… We hope that by the time of the 80th anniversary of the discovery of the scrolls, other scrolls will have been discovered in the Judean Desert, and that with the help of new technologies we will be able to conserve them in the best possible manner, explore and discover more significant layers in this enormous and dramatic cultural asset that was entrusted to us for safekeeping.”
