In this innovative study, the Lonnqvists analyze the often neglected archaeological evidence to reassess the society and religion of the Qumran community. Their purpose is to reexamine Qumran from an archaeological perspective rather than allowing the Dead Sea Scrolls themselves to color what may or may not have been the beliefs and practices of Qumran.
