Chapter Summary

A unique find in 2004 of an intact and sealed storage jar on the plateau south of the Qumran settlement provided a rare opportunity to make archaeometric analyzes that would help reveal the time and last use of the jar. In 2006 Buti et al. reported results showing the identification of tartaric acid, which indicated the past presence of wine or vinegar in the jar. This chapter presents an overview of the attempts to date samples of charcoal in the deposit by radiocarbon dating and the ceramic fabric of the jar by thermoluminescence dating. Two dates are of interest in establishing a time frame for Jar-35.

Keywords: jar-35; radiocarbon dating; thermoluminescence dating
