Highlights from the Israel Antiquities Authority: The Dead Sea Scrolls and 5,000 Years of Treasures
UNITED STATES
SAN FRANCISCO  •  Legion of Honor  •  Ongoing
 
This show features rotating examples of the Dead Sea Scroll fragments in addition to artifacts spanning over 5,000 years, from the Chalcolithic Age (4,000 BC) to the Fatimid Period (11th century AD). 

The Dead Sea Scrolls, one of the greatest archaeological discoveries in history, were uncovered by Bedouin herders and excavated by archaeologists in caves along the northwestern shore of the Dead Sea.  Fragments of the scrolls were pieced together to form more than 800 documents, many of them Biblical and Apocryphal manuscripts. All of the treasures on view are on loan from the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA).
