Jan Gunneweg, Ph.D. 1981 in archaeometry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He has published many pottery provenance papers with the aid of neutron activation analysis and recently three scientific books on Qumran and the Dead Sea scrolls (2003, 2006, 2009). Annemie Adriaens, Ph.D. (1993) in Chemistry, University of Antwerp, is Professor of Chemistry at Ghent University. She has published extensively on the topic of cultural heritage and science including a review on non-destructive analysis of museum objects (Spectrochimica Acta B 60 (2005) 1503-1516). Joris Dik is associate professor at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the Technical University of Delft, Netherlands. He focuses on multidisciplinary activities in materials in art and archaeology.

Much of the previous sixty years (1949-2009) have been devoted to the cleaning of the Dead Sea scrolls, their piecing together and their translation. The present volume is a scientific study of the various archaeological relics that have been found in the three units at Qumran: The settlement, the caves with the scrolls and the cemetery. With the aid of neutron activation of Qumran's pottery we established its human relations with neighboring sites, by radio carbon dating we placed the relics in their time frame, by DNA we study the provenance of the animal hides that served the scribes as parchment. The ink is studied for examining the degradation processes that started when the scrolls were written, 2000-2300 years ago. The results of the Lorentz Center Qumran Proceedings will help to learn the past of the scrolls as well as the opening it to the scientists and the general public.
