The Princeton Theological Seminary Dead Sea Scrolls Project was launched in 1985. It is directed by Dr. James H. Charlesworth and H.W.L. Rietz.
The project has two main focuses. First, it is an effort not only to excavate scrolls that still may be buried in the Dead Sea Region, but to locate many of the fragments still believed to be in private collections and yet unknown to the world. Secondly, its goal is to reveal yet unseen text on the scrolls and fragments that we do have by the latest digital and photographic technologies. In this way, it will also help to preserve and record the thousands of scrolls fragments that are now disintegrating and liquefying from chemical breakdown. As the fragments are recorded and translated, they will be published and made available to the public. Funds are needed to follow-up on potentially rewarding leads as to the whereabouts of new fragments and to continue the scientific enhancement and recording of the fragments we now have. This work is primarily being done at the Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey.
