Dead Sea Scrolls: Life in Ancient Times -- SOLD OUT

Field trip to the Museum of Science in Boston

Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013

"In 1947, a goatherd wandered into one of the many hidden caves along the banks of the Dead Sea -- and concealed inside were ancient scrolls that had not been seen in 2,000 years.  These Dead Sea Scrolls include literary writings of the times and the oldest known texts of the Bible, making their discovery perhaps the most significant archaeological find of the last century."  Boston Museum of Science
