The famous Dead Sea Scrolls compromise the oldest collection of Biblical documents ever discovered. Of the Dead Sea Scrolls, none has baffled experts more than the 2,000-year-old Copper Scroll, discovered in 1952 by a team of Bedouin led by Henri Contenson of the Ecole Biblique in Eastern Jerusalem. Appearing to be a list of buried treasure engraved on copper pieces, the Copper Scroll is considered to be the work of a highly secretive Jewish sect of devout Essenes, who lived by the Dead Sea around the time of Jesus. No one has been able to explain its meaning or discover any of the 64 locations where the biblical treasures it lists were buried. Now Robert Feather, combining his scientific background as a metallurgist with his journalistic expertise, has unravelled the enigma of the Copper Scroll in a fascinating study that takes the reader on a journey from ancient Mesopotamia, through Canaan, into Egypt and back to the shores of the Dead Sea. His exploration links the scroll to the Ancient Egyptian king Akhhenaten, confirming a long suspected influence of this pharaoh's religious beliefs on those of the Hebrews.
