      Stephen,

      Since I am not a subscriber, was any comparison made to any ink that might have been recovered from the so-called "inkwells"
      discovered in the so-called "scriptorium?"

      Respectfully,

      Subject: [XTalk] ink from a Dead Sea Scroll made near the Dead Sea



      A new article reports measurements of the ratio of chlorine and bromine in ink from a Qumran Cave One manuscript and concludes that
      the ink was prepared with water from or near the Dead Sea; the Qumran scroll was inscribed near the Dead Sea.

      Ira Rabin, Oliver Hahn, Timo Wolff, Admir Masic and Gisela Weinberg, "On the Origin of the Ink of the Thanksgiving Scroll (1QHodayot
      a)," Dead Sea Discoveries 16.1 (2009) 97-106.

      Abstract (p. 97): "In this study we demonstrate the possibility to identify the production area of the scrolls, coupling
      non-destructive quantitative analysis of trace elements to spectroscopic investigation of the inks. This approach, that allowed us
      to determine the Dead Sea area as origin of 1QHodayot a, is of general validity."

      Conclusion (p. 102) "Using the fingerprint composition of the water from the Dead Sea region we could directly link the fragment,
      and consequently, the production of 1QHodayot a to the Qumran area. Furthermore, our study of organic components present in the
      carbon ink of this scroll indicates that gall nuts extracts were used in the ink preparation as early as 1st century C.E."
