Freeing the Dead Sea Scrolls and Other Adventures of an Archaeology Outsider By Hershel Shanks

The fascinating account of an archaeology outsider and his scrapes with governments, nomads and scoundrels.

Hershel Shanks is the founder and editor of Biblical Archaeology Review. Once a successful Washington attorney, Shanks changed careers after a trip to the Holy Land and devoted himself to the study of Biblical archaeology.

When the Dead Sea Scrolls (1947–1956) were discovered, a complex tale of theft and conspiracy began in the world of biblical archaeology. Hershel Shanks, a chief protagonist in the story, spearheaded a campaign to release the scrolls to the wider scholarly community throughout the 1980s, using Biblical Archaeology Review as a mouthpiece for the cause. Later Shanks’s involvement greatly increased when he published reconstructed fascicles of the secret scrolls amidst much controversy. Shanks must be seen as one of the crucial factors that finally brought these vital tools of academic study, these Dead Sea Scrolls, to the wider world.

Elsewhere Shanks’s vigorous defense of the authenticity of the James Ossuary—which is said to have contained the bones of James, the brother of Jesus—is explored in one of the book’s liveliest chapters.
