Original caption: Workmen, ‘Asa on left and Mohamet ‘Adhib.
Comment: William Reed was particularly good on recording the images and names of some of the Bedouin workmen involved in the survey and excavation work in the cave expedition of 1952. Asa appears as sitting second from right in the group photograph (ASOR 1952-17), and Mohamet ‘Adhib is on the far right.
THE ASOR COLLECTION CONTAINS PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE 1952 EXPLORATION OF THE QUMRAN CAVES, FOLLOWING THE INITIAL DISCOVERY OF THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS, WHICH HAVE BEEN SHARED WITH MEMBERS OF THE DQCAAS NETWORK.
