I prefer to see Qumran Qumran as a repository for the 
Jerusalem Temple. When Herod destroys the public records 
held at the Temple, Temple officials take anything that 
might smack of being anti-Herodian (secterian manuscripts)  
and transfer the scrolls to the repository. I agree with 
Brad that the fort is simply not there, (and neither  are 
the Essenes).
