Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 71 B3 Khirbet Qazone

The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Khirbet Qazone The archaeological site was discovered in 1996. The necropolis was the site of rescue excavations in spring 2004. Archaeological findings indicate that the site is significant for its similarity to Khirbet Qumran where the Essenes are thought to have written the so-called Dead Sea Scrolls. The site has suffered and continues to suffer from ruthless illegal excavation and looting. Of the estimated 5,000 burials at the site, some 3,500 have been looted thus far.
