Archimedes Rediscovered

Read the incredible story of the rediscovery of the long-lost works of the Greek mathematician Archimedes, a 2,200 year-old papyrus scroll, hidden under the ink of a 700 year old prayer book. The manuscript of "The method" is now the earliest known work on calculus.

"A Prayer For Archimedes" in Science News.
