The Dead Sea Scrolls and Contemporary Developments

A short while ago I posted a short video explainer on the Dead Sea Scrolls. Below is a much more expanded lecture from the director of the Dead Sea Scrolls Foundation, Dr. Weston Field, on what the Dead Sea Scrolls are, how they were originally saved, why they are important, and why some fragments are only now becoming known. Since the lecture was first delivered 6 years ago, many more exciting developments have have come to light, including the discovery of whole new cave. This presentation not only explains why scholars anticipated such developments but orients you to what the contemporary trends are in the specialised field. After the lecture video is a Q&A session video.
