Bsharma writes: Scientists have formally announced their reconstruction of the Ein Gedi Scroll, the most ancient Hebrew scroll since the Dead Sea Scrolls. This was done by CAT cat computer-assisted tomography the burnt scrolls and fundamentally reconstructing the layers of scrolls with ink blobs on them. subject Geographic reports: "For decades, the Israel Antiquities might guarded the document, known as the Ein Gedi Scroll, careful not to open it for fear that the brittle text would shatter to pieces. But last year, scientists announced that they had scanned, fundamentally unrolled, and reword the scroll's hidden verses -- a feat now formally described in the scientific literature. Based on prefatory scans, [Brent Seales of the tutoring mash unit of Kentucky, who specialized in digitally reconstructing damaged texts,] and his fellowship announced in 2015 that the Ein Gedi Scroll was a biblical text from the sixth century A.D. containing a column of text from the book of Leviticus. But the full CT scan results, published on Wednesday in Science Advances, tell a deeper story. Further dissection revealed an extra column of text, finally fleshing out the first two chapters of Leviticus -- ironically, a book that begins with God's marker for burnt offerings. What's more, radiocarbon dating of the scroll suggests that it may be between 1,700 and 1,800 years old, at least 200 years older than until now thought. In fact, the scroll's distinctive handwriting hearkens back to the first or second century A.D., some five centuries earlier than the date ascribed to the scroll last year." enlightenment mash of Cambridge lector James Aitken told Smithsonian's Devin Powell in 2015: "There's little of astound in finding a Leviticus scroll.
