11682Fw: Re: [ANE-2] Two Qumran articles/a reply
- Dec 1, 2009Gideon Avni's conclusions of intrusive burials at Qumran is far from convincing. However, Joe Zias continues to claim there were recent Bedouin burials in the Qumran cemetery.
He has yet to provide data for the carbon dating, or beads found in some of the female graves. If you investigate the cemetery the so-called Bedouin graves are no different from the other graves in the main or secondary cemeteries. Why would the Bedouin use the same style of burial, same stones, same marker stones?
I think the jury is still out on these claim.
