The Archimedes Palimpsest

The so-called “Archimedes Palimpsest” has long been recognised as one of the most important documents in the history of science. Containing two original works by Archimedes, this unusual manuscript eventually became a Byzantine book of prayer. Cambridge University Press and the Walters Art Museum have collaborated to produce this stunning edition of the work which has been long in the making. Edited by some of our most eminent scholars including Nigel Wilson and Reviel Netz, this is sure to be at the top of every classicist’s wish list this holiday season!
