orion Ir Hammelech
de Vaux notes in his "Archaeology and the Dead Sea Scrolls" ( a thoroughly
convincing book!) that the city, Ir Hammelech, mentioned in Josh 15:61-62,
should be identified as Khirbet Qumran.
Since Noth also (in his ZDPV article) also supports this identification I am
wondering if their suggestion has been adopted by the majority.
