Understanding ancient scrolls from Herculaneum


Recommended Posts


"Three students have won a $700,000 prize after using AI to read a 2,000-year-old scroll burnt during the Mount Vesuvius eruption in 79AD."

This is a great story .A few years back there was talk as to whether these (or similar scrolls) would be legible and now there seems a lot of optimism because of new technology available .
