One American archaeologist is trying to crack the Dead Sea Scroll code.
Alison Schofield, a professor of religious and Judaic studies from the University of Denver, is working on a new translation of the ancient scroll. She hopes to get a rare look at Judaism and Christianity from the time of Jesus.
“I was always a fan of Indiana Jones, and I was always interested in the Middle East,” Schofield told the University of Denver in an interview. “I’ve been interested in the Dead Sea Scrolls for as long as I can remember.”
