The highlight of the museum was its display of fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls. There was a 250 000 year old human skull, and I love this ancient horny devil.
We found these treasures from Nahal David and Ein Gedi, where we’ve just been. The ibex figures and bracelets pale next to the first century Pyrex bowl.
This is the oldest mask ever found. These inscribed burial ossuaries took the cake.
The bohemian suburb of Ein Karem, crowned with a golden dome, seen through the lavender above, is near the museum.
