Medicine’s Hidden Roots in an Ancient Manuscript. From NYTimes.com

We've been talking about ancient texts and reconstructions of ancient books all weekend and tonight this article comes up on the NYC site...‎it's all a mystery wrapped in forgotten knowledge left at someone's door. Who knows where we'll find the next piece of an ancient puzzle? Good thing we have people who study, live for knowledge and love books of all kinds.
