International conference at State Museum of Archaeology Chemnitz.
The Dead Sea is not only the lowest point of the earth but confronts humans with a harsh environment. And yet, over many thousands of years people made a living out of the region, built settlements, cities, temples and hid treasures in caves. This conference brings together researchers from different countries in order to discuss the region’s environment, its resources, cultural development and research on the Qumran site. Speakers included Professor Marcello Fidanzio, presenting:“What Can We Learn from the Archaeology of Qumran Cave 11Q?”
