Dining Room at Qumran

Dining Room at Qumran.jpg

This large room, located towards the southern end of the building complex, has been identified by excavators as a dining room. Adjacent to it was a pantry with a large number of dishes still neatly stacked when the site was destroyed. It is generally believed that the Qumran sectarians ate their communal meals in this room.
