Historical! Boston

We all know that Boston is dripping with history so when I say historical Boston I am not referring to Boston.  No, I am referring to the fact that Boston is showing the Dead Sea Scrolls.  Boston may be a small city but what an achievement - to bring the Scrolls to us here.  The Dead Sea Scrolls found in a cave on the banks of the Dead Sea by a goat herd include literary writings of the times and the oldest known texts of the Bible.  It is a truly magnificent exhibit and with the Scrolls is a wonderful collection of artifacts dating back to 1000 B.C.E.   show us details of the culture, rituals, and beliefs of the people
