This exhibit will be visually stunning, as it features 600 actual archaeologically excavated artifacts plus 10 samples of authentic scrolls. This is unusual for a traveling exhibition. Most come with 250 to 300 artifacts and replicas. All 600 are actual pieces from Biblical to the Byzantine period in Israel and many are from recent excavations and on public display for the first time.
Watch this page for another post after the event. And, if you're interested in going, let me know! We're offering NEXUS for up to 4 credits which will include pre-reading and discussion.
PS: If you remember GC alum '12, Jordan -- she'll be working at the Museum Center that day. So, we'll reconnect with a GC alum, history major, and art history/museum studies student during our visit. Yay!
