3D Archaeological puzzle | Qumran by Antika


The original Jars of the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in the summer of 1947 by a Bedouin boy who went climbing up a cliff near Qumran. Looking for a lost goat, he picked up a stone and tossed it into a cave... alas, no goat came scampering out, but he did hear the sound of crashing pottery. This was the beginning of the most exciting and important archaeological discovery of the 20th century: that of the scrolls related to the Essenes, a Jewish/Christian sect that lived there 2000 years ago.The original jars of Qumran were obviously used to store scrolls and other precious parchments, were about 50-65 centimeters (25-32.5 inches) in length, and are on display today in the Shrine of the Book, Israel Museum, in Jerusalem.
