Abstract: The development of a 364 day calendar, as catalogued in the Dead Scrolls found near Qumran and dating from approximately 200 BC to the first century AD, gives clues to its origin and, coupled with data in the biblical books of Ezekiel, Kings and others, enables reconstruction of a possible 364 day Calendar introduced at the Exodus, the latter itself derived from the calendar alluded to in the Flood narrative. These calendars turn out to be quite different from those developed at Qumran and elsewhere but all these date from several hundred years after the start of Babylonian Exile so the layout of the original 364 day year could well have been lost.
