Dan Rodricks: Vanished faces of a West Virginia boom town

The Archimedes Palimpsest

After processing, the Archimedes' text of "Floating Bodies" as well as a diagram can be seen in pages from The Archimedes Palampsest. An exhibit opens Sunday at the Walters that details both a modern detective story and a history of the Palimpsest that is populated with heroes and rogues.
