  1. Esther Esher presented this in Birmingham last November. If I recall correctly, it preserved maybe 20 words (including "its doors", from chapter 3?). The identification seemed pretty confident. I don't think there were any particularly significant variants, though there was talk of one possible reconstructed one. I look forward to the full publication of all the Schoyen scrolls!
