Ancient Refuge in the Holy Land

Ancient Refuge in the Holy Land is a website of educational resources based on discoveries in the Cave of Letters near the Dead Sea in Israel. 

From site:

One of the most spectacular finds in the Cave of Letters was a packet of personal documents that belonged to a young Jewish woman named Babatha. Probably born around A.D. 104, Babatha became a woman of means who, by the time of her death around 132, owned valuable properties left to her by her father and her two husbands. (For more background on her extraordinary life, see Babatha’s Life and Times.) Here, have a close look at one of the 35 papyrus scrolls in the Babatha archive—a registration of land dating from the year 127—and get an inkling of what life was like for a well-to-do Jewish woman living under Roman rule in the second century.
