Summary
Drawings and writings by Archimedes, previously thought to have been destroyed, have been uncovered beneath the pages of a 13th-century monk's prayer book. The authors tell the story of the survival of that prayer book and examine the process of recovering the text underneath as well as investigating why the text is so important
