"Weapons & War in the Iron Age" comes to the Western Science Center

The Western Science Center in Hemet, California is teaming up with La Sierra University to present Weapons & War in the Iron Age which "examines the important period of the 2nd millenium BC in the ancient Near East." The exhibit will open May 19, 2013.

From the museum website:

Weapons & War in the Iron Age features authentic weapons recovered from modern-day Israel and Jordan,
plus artifacts depicting religion and daily life in the ancient Near East, and the destruction caused when wars came into the home.  Multimedia displays help bring the fighting to life, and authentic replica weapons let you touch the same tools that meant life or death to ancient warriors!
