Remnants of benches that Roland de Vaux found in his excavations of the  “Scriptorium” at Qumran.  He believed that the scribes would sit on the “benches” and the scrolls would be copied or composed on the higher “table.”

These fragments are housed in the small but important museum on the Citadel in the middle of Amman, Jordan.
