Comment lire un manuscrit vieux de 2000 ans qui a été effacé et découpé et sur lequel on a écrit et peint? Par le moyen d'un puissant accélérateur de particules, bien sûr! William Noel est un conservateur de livres anciens; il nous raconte la fascinante histoire du palimpseste d'Archimède, un recueil de prières byzantin contenant des écrits jusqu'alors inconnus d'Archimède, mathématicien grec de l'Antiquité, et d'autres auteurs.
