Hvordan læser man et 2000 år gammelt manuskript, som er blevet skåret op, skrevet på og malet over? Med en kraftfuld partikel-accelerator, selvfølgelig! William Noel, kurator af oldtidens bøger, fortæller den fascinerende historie bag Arkimedes' palimpsest, en byzantinsk bønnebog indeholdende hidtil ukendte originale værker af den oldgræske matematiker Arkimedes og andre.
