The header image above shows a portion of the Archimedes Palimpsest. On the left we see the palimpsest as it was found, showing the text from a prayer book that was written over the Archimedes text. On the right we see the text of Archimedes hidden underneath the prayer book. To learn more about the palimpsest and the efforts to uncover the work beneath the prayers, go to the Archimedes Palimpsest page, from which these images are taken.
