California: Ancient wonders

Said to be the largest exhibition of its kind ever mounted outside of Israel, Dead Sea Scrolls: The Exhibition opens this week at the California Science Center in Los Angeles featuring more than 600 ancient artifacts. Over half of the scrolls on display have never before been seen in the U.S., and some have never been exhibited since their discovery. The fragmentary scrolls in the exhibition contain passages from Genesis, Isaiah, Psalms, and even an ancient marriage contract dated to the first century.
