Mega Archaeological Find: New Cave Discovered at Qumran

Mega Archaeological Find: New Cave Discovered at Qumran February 8, 2017

This is not a drill, over at theLab, Craig Evans writes on a new cave discovered at Qumran, including some new parchments! This is known as Cave 12 with a possible Cave 13 still to be found.

[Randall] Price and his team made a truly significant discovery. Although the cave that the archaeologist and his team excavated had been looted (and the looters left behind a couple pick-axes), what was unearthed was quite important. Price and has team recovered six jars identical to the jars found in several of the other Qumran caves. These ceramic jars were designed to contain scrolls.

I hope there is an SBL session on this in Boston in 2017!
