The Dead Sea Scrolls are undoubtedly the most important archaeological discovery ever made in the Holy Land. The first scrolls were discovered in 1947, by two Bedouins, near a site called Qumran. Eventually 11 caves around Qumran proved to contain scrolls or fragments of them. In total, 20 complete scrolls, and another 16,000 fragments of scrolls were recorded. The Copper Scroll was found in 1952 by a French archaeological expedition, in the furthest cave from Qumran. The scroll was all intact, but unfolding it took several years, and only then was it read. It proved to contain a rather technical list, of 60 locations, each containing a hoard of gold, silver and temple utensils. The scroll has generated a lot of speculations and research in hope of tracking these treasures. This specially designed private tour will first take you to the cave where the Copper Scroll was found. After a full reading of the text, it will lead you to some of the locations where excavations were carried out in hope of finding one of the treasures. So prepare your whip and Indiana Jones hat – We’re going for some serious treasure hunting!
