Often referred to as one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time, the Dead Sea Scrolls will be making a six month stop in Raleigh at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. The exhibit will feature 12 scrolls from the collection, which consists of about 1,000 texts, fragments, and documents that were discovered in caves around the settlement of Qumran, and date back to 200 B.C.
The exhibit runs from June 28- December 28, 2008. It might seem a bit pricey for tickets ($22 for adults), but a chance to view documents that last saw the light of day 2,000 years ago is worth it.
