      In the following

      http://www.haaretzdaily.com/hasen/spages/458273.html

      Yizhar Hirschfeld reportedly claimed that finds "contradict everything we know
      about every aspect of the Essenes" --perfect over the top tendentiousness.

      For new information on further connections between Essenes, the Khirbeh, the
      scrolls and the caves, see J.-B. Humbert and J. Gunneweg in NTOA-SA vol. 2--
      including yet another Qumran inkwell, from a locus with a long inscription.

      For the helpful observation that some "luxury" items come from Period III, i.e.
      after 68 AD, a after Essene habitation, see Joan E. Taylor in PEQ (2004) 91-97.
