Digging Up Qumran (Episode 11) During the early 1950s the riddle of the Dead Sea Scrolls takes a new turn. Father Roland de Vaux, under the supervision of the Jordanian government, organizes a major excavation of the site of Khirbet Qumran. As the diggers meticulously remove the rubble, an entire ancient settlement begins to appear. The amazing thing is that, even after two long millennia, the Dead Sea Scrolls and the legacy they convey still belong to everybody.
