Abstract Large parts of Archimedes’ writings were recently deciphered at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource at SLAC. A special x-ray technique showed maps of iron in faint traces of partially erased ink. The x-ray images revealed Archimedes’ writings from some of his most important works that were hidden by twelfth-century biblical texts, mold and forged gold paintings.
