The part that got me was the scotch tape. They could press them between the plates of glass but why did they also use the tape?

In actual fact, pressing ancient manuscript fragments between glass plates is a terrible idea. When the Six Day War started in 1967 archaeologists and scholars working on the Dead Sea Scrolls were forced to evacuate, and were unable to return for nearly two full years. When they eventually did, they discovered that numerous fragments had been crushed by the weight of the glass. In their absence the plates had been stacked atop one another, and this destroyed huge numbers of the artefacts.

Just make sure you sprinkle salt on the dvd case AFTER you sign it.

That was really cool to watch. Glad you posted about this.

All of this is so fascinating. I think I mentioned to you Kipp that I was in Israel a year ago and visited the Shrine of the Book. The entire Israel Museum is so impressive.

Damn sorry I missed the Nova episode. Will try to find a way to watch.

Ha, weird you are right, I was connected to a VPN when I posted that. Strangely it was a Canadian VPN and it worked.

Not if you are in Canada, you can't.

Awesome to watch, Kipp!

I could have used more of your sections, and the CT scanned carbonized scroll (that was so fascinating), and less of most of the people in the first half of the program. The episode was Dead Sea scrolls detectives, but really only two of you were actually “detectives”.

All of the other talking heads look so... professorly, and then there’s Kipp is his Flames shirt. Love it.

Yeah that shirt was like a bat signal... I was watching the episode and then thought "hey, I think there is a thread on this on CP!"

Totally agree with Thneed about less of the first half and more of you and the carbonized scroll.
