Two Dead Sea Scrolls will be shown for the first time in an unprecedentedly large-scale Israel Antiquities Authority exhibition in Denver, Colorado. The two scrolls will be presented along with a three-ton stone from the Western Wall, some 600 artifacts from the biblical to Bar Kochba periods, and 18 other Dead Sea Scrolls in an exhibit set to run for six months, starting Friday.

The unveiling of two new fragments is fitting in a year celebrating the 70th anniversary of what is arguably the most important archaeological find of the 20th century.
