Chapter Summary

Dead Sea mud, famous for its therapeutic properties to the human skin is also an important ingredient in the understanding of the Dead Sea make-up and its ecological system. The scope of this chapter is twofold: 1) to study the question whether Dead Sea mud is suitable to make ceramic and 2) since the environment of the Dead Sea area is imperative to be studied because of its impact on the conservation of the Dead Sea scrolls that depends among others also on what the scrolls went through the past 2000 years. It also has its impact in case Dead Sea water was used to prepare parchment locally. The chapter intends to make a ceramic of the Dead Sea mud because for it is possible that the Qumranites used it to have pure clay from the sea.
