Archaeology in the Middle East
Ancient pottery & replica Dead Seas Scrolls
Biblical archaeology has changed the knowledge base of the Holy Land. From the Dead Seas Scrolls to important excavations, come to the exhibit and be enlightened. Discovered with the Dead Seas Scrolls, this replica Psalms scroll contains 11 of the 15 Songs of Ascent (Psalms 120-134). Pilgrims would sing these Psalms while they ascended to Jerusalem. It was in 1956 that a Bedouin discovered Qumran Cave 11 with these 1st century CE (Common Era) Psalms.
