Re: orion-list Donkey-Trail

Once again I have to set the record straight :-) Cave 1 contained 8
jars, three of which held manuscripts (7) also these caves were later
cleared out by the archaeologists and the pottery restored. Therefore,
for the record there is a direct association between some of the caves
and the scrolls, unless these caves held water jugs. As these jars are
not found anywhere else in the arch. record of the region and are also
found in caves can we not assume that these are scroll jars and not
water jugs?  Water by the way is usually transported in water skins not
water jars.  Lastly, how about those unique tie down tops with the lugs,
prevent water leakage? Remember 'form follows function' and not the
other way around.
