Dead Sea Scrolls: Life in Ancient Times features the most comprehensive collection of ancient artifacts from Israel ever organized, including one of the largest collections of the priceless 2,000-year-old Dead Sea Scrolls. The exhibition was created by the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) from the collections of the Israel National Treasures. The Boston run of the exhibit is partnered by Brandeis University, which has mounted a number of related events during the run of the exhibit (http://www.brandeis.edu/dead-sea-scrolls/; click on the events tab).
Considered among the world’s greatest archaeological discoveries, the Scrolls contain the oldest known copies of the Hebrew Bible. Of the more than 500 objects from the Biblical to Byzantine Period in Israel, many objects are from recent archaeological excavations in Jerusalem and have never been publicly exhibited. Objects include remains of religious articles, weapons of war, stone carvings, textiles and beautiful mosaics along with everyday household items such as jewelry and ceramics.
History of the exhibit: From November 15, 2012 to Mid-April 2013 the exhibit was housed at The Cincinnati Museum Center, 1301 Western Avenue , Cincinnati; from May 12 to October 14, 2012, it appeared at The Franklin Institute, 222 N. 20th Street, Philadelphia; before that (October 2011 to April, 2012) it was at Discovery Times Square in New York City.
