Invisible ink

Sympathies to the researchers at the University of Kentucky. It seems they still can’t read  the scorched scrolls rescued from Herculaneum despite the application of huge amounts of computer- and brain-power. Full details are over at Kentucky.com.

While they’re trying to figure it out, the rest of us can marvel at this video in which every little detail of the scroll can be seen – er, except what was written on it before Vesuvius erupted and burned it to a crisp.

Thanks to Rogueclassicism, which is where I found the link.
