Re: DSS Scribes

Concerning the idea that there were a multitude of scribes responsible for
the scrolls, has anyone actually done a handwriting analysis on the
documents and demonstrated that they are from a variety of hands?
Does the possibility not exist that a small group of scribes wrote the
documents over a period of 30 or more years and that as time progressed the
handwriting of these scribes also changed?  (Or, in other words, is your
penmanship or mine the same as it was 30 years ago?)
