The Dead Sea Scrolls Exhibit- Pacific Science Center, Seattle, Washington

You’ve probably heard the story…a shepherd boy was searching for a lost sheep in the area of Qumran. He threw a rock in the direction of a cave and heard the sound of pottery breaking. What he found when he went to look at what he hit was one of history’s greatest discoveries – the Dead Sea Scrolls. The scrolls date from the mid-third century B.C. and consist of both biblical and sectarian manuscripts

Now you can get a personal look at the scrolls themselves on view at Seattle, Washington’s Pacific Science Center. . “Discovering The Dead Sea Scrolls” will run from September 23, 2006 through January 2007. For more information visit the center’s website at
