DSS ms dating by C14, paleography and AI

From a recorded conference and a recent publication come the *preliminary* suggestion that some Dead Sea Scrolls are to be dated “earlier” or “slightly older” than previously estimated. *If* that, in future publications of the project (that contributed 30 additional C14 tests and also used artificial intelligence with paleography), is confirmed and accepted, then it may possibly further show that late first century proposals for the identities of the Wicked Priest and the Teacher of Righteousness may be too late to be plausible.
NYU Conference presentations are now recorded, here:

See especially: The Hands that Wrote the Bible. Digital Palaeography of the Dead Sea Scrolls for Identifying and Dating Manuscripts - Mladen Popović and Maruf Dhali, University of Groningen
Also, Eibert Tigchelaar, “Seventy Years of Paleographic Dating of the Dead Sea Scrolls,” pages 258-278.
In: Sacred texts and disparate interpretations Qumran manuscripts seventy years later: proceedings of the international conference held at the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, 24-26 October 2017 /: Seventy Years of Palaeographic Dating of the Dead Sea Scrolls. 2020.
