¿Cómo lees un manuscrito de dos mil años de antigüedad que ha sido borrado, cortado, escrito y pintado por encima? ¡Con un poderoso acelerador de partículas, por supuesto! El curador de libros antiguos, William Noel explica la fascinante historia detrás del palimpsesto de Arquímedes, un libro de oraciones bizantino que contenía, previamente desconocidos, escritos originales del antiguo matemático griego Arquímedes y de otros.
