Wadi Murba'at Textile
One of the highlights of Ptil Tekhelet's 100 Years to Tekhelet Research Conference was a presentation by Dr. Naama Sukenik from the Israel Antiquities Authority who, together with Prof. Zohar Amar and Dr. David Iluz from Bar Ilan University, examined a unique and important find from the Murba'at caves in the Judean desert. A fabric dated to the second century, dyed with material obtained from the Murex trunculus sea-snail and colored blue, was shown to be of local Israelite origin. More information on this incredible treasure can be found here.
