	When I first raised this question I pointed out that the signi-
ficant matter was not when the DSS were written but when they placed in 
the jars.
	Now let me throw in another variable: Murphy-O'Conner wrote that 
the continuity of the pottery type and the use of the room indicates that
the same group occupied the Qumran site in periods Ib and II.
	Let me concede locus 2, but just for the moment, and let me ask 
you how you would address the above problem. The results are just the same 
unless you posit that the folks who occupied Qumran during the 1st century
CE had not idea what the folks in the 1st century BCE were up to.
