A book discovered written by Archimedes. It also contains 10 pages of text by the 4th century B.C. Attic Greek orator Hyperides. Also six folios from a Neo-Platonic philosophical text that has yet to be identified, but may be commentaries on Aristotle. Archimedes Palimpsest was used as a 10th Century medieval manuscript that is the subject of an ongoing technical, scientific and conservation effort at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland.

This Nova documentary focuses more on the story behind the 3rd century BC mathematician’s methods and the decryption of the palimpsest (paper that’s been written on more than once). Truly one of the most accomplished scientists/mathematicians ever, certainly for his time. This is a six part series on Youtube. Im just giving you the link for the first one. Im sure if you are intrested you computer savy people can find the others...
