Title: Roman library at Pompeii
Post by: besilarius on December 21, 2020, 01:15:52 PM
The scrolls of a personal library at Pompeii have been known for over a hundred years.  They were charred by the eruption and too fragile to be opened.
The TV show NOVA just showed how a charred scroll from the Judean desert was read.
