In a cave by the Dead Sea, a copper scroll treasure map from the time of the 1st century CE was found in 1952, promising riches estimated to be worth billions by today's standards. Over half a century later, mystery still surrounds this ancient manuscript. Could these fragments of corroded metal really hold the clues to a massive buried fortune? If so, where did these vast treasures come from? Why were they buried? And are they still out there? Some scholars believe the copper scrolls represent a detailed treasure map—a list of hiding places where the priests of Jerusalem's Second Temple stored their most precious silver and gold artifacts during times of trouble. Join us as we reveal the secrets behind this very unique and valuable Dead Sea Scroll.

 

UNIQUE ARCHAEOLOGICAL ARTIFACT WILL BE ON DISPLAY!

A unique find dating back to the Temple period will be on display. It was discovered in the Qumran Caves in Israel using the Copper Scroll as a guide. It is a reddish organic mixture that has been analyzed in a lab to contain 8 out of the 11 spices used in the Ketoret (Temple incense). You will have a chance to see it for yourself!
