Article on Brent Seales and Virtually Unwrapping Carbonized Scrolls

There is a recently published article on Brent Seales' work towards virtually unwrapping carbonized scrolls that provides a lot of interesting background information. A fascinating read.

  1. Thanks for posting that link Drew. Given the A.D. 79 date of the Herculaneum destruction, it sure seems a potential treasure trove of early Christian texts, among other literature. Apparently, the kind of ink was used will be important in what can be 'virtually' seen though.
