On the shore of the Dead Sea lies the remains of an ancient city of the Essenes. During the time leading up to the first Jewish revolt they were a society of scribes, copying scripture and writing other documents. Many of these papers have been found and are known as the Dead Sea Scrolls. The site is historically significant, but honestly, there's not much to see. The morning I left for the Dead Sea I called my mom and she was overjoyed that I was going to get to see Qumran. This post is dedicated to her enthusiasm ;-) I imagine Brynn will get a kick out of this, too!
