Podcast Episode #66: The Dead Sea Scrolls


Welcome to Accessible Art History: The Podcast! In this episode of Unearthed, I'm discussing one of my personal favorite discoveries: The Dead Sea Scrolls! I had the honor of visiting both the discovery site (Qumran) and the Israel Museum (where the majority of the scrolls are held), so I'm going to include a few of my personal pictures in this post.
