Virtually Unwrapping the En-Gedi Scroll

Published on Sep 21, 2016 VisCenter

"University of Kentucky Professor Brent Seales and his team have further unlocked writings in the ancient En-Gedi scroll - the first severely damaged, ink-based scroll to be unrolled and identified noninvasively. Through virtual unwrapping, they have revealed it to be the earliest copy of a Pentateuchal book – Leviticus – ever found in a Holy Ark.

This video describes the process by which the text in the En-Gedi scroll was revealed."
