Picture of Dead Sea ScrollsThe Museum of Science is hosting the exhibit “Dead Sea Scrolls:  Life in Ancient Times” through October 20, 2013.

The exhibit starts with a brief overview, then uses artifacts from different time periods to take you back to Ancient Israel.  There are displays of pottery, coins, jewelry and mosaics that range from the time of King David to the Age of the Roman Empire.  A brief video outlines the discovery of the scrolls, which occured during the establishment of the Nation of Israel, and the difficulties that were encountered in the effort to preserve them for future generations.
