        The Dead Sea Scrolls

        In this video from The Story of the Jews, Simon Schama takes us to the caves of Qumran, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. Schama explains that the Scrolls were comprised of 850 separate manuscripts, and included not only biblical texts but also other texts that reveal the religious diversity of the time. In the second part of the video, Schama visits the Israel Antiquities Authority in Jerusalem, where a team of specialists preserve, record, and publish these extraordinary ancient documents.
