Dead Sea Scrolls in Boston . . .

On October 19th, my wife and I went on a date to go see the Dead Sea Scrolls on their last weekend in Boston at the Boston Science Museum. I am pretty romantic, don’t you think? Well, the science museum is the site of our first date so there is something romantic about it for us.

Anyhow, it was a wonderful day. The exhibit was PACKED, and not that well organized. However, it was great to see so many items from antiquity. Sadly, I was unable to snap pictures of the scrolls themselves, but the altars, pillar figurines, and jugglets were fair game. So, without further ado, here are the pictures I took. The highlight of these images were royal seals and pottery fragments with writing on them. Enjoy!

I hope you enjoy these images.
