    "The recovery in the 1750s of more than a thousand scorched papyrus rolls from the Villa dei Papiri in ancient Herculaneum caused great excitement among contemporaries. The find held the tantalizing possibility of the rediscovery of lost masterpieces by classical writers. Although the papyrus rolls were charred, some quite severely, much of their contents could be read."

    Out of the ashes recovering the lost library of Herculaneum ( visu )
    1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 33 libraries worldwide
    "When the eruption of Mount Vesuvius buried the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79 A.D., it not only froze an ancient civilization, it also preserved the only surviving library from antiquity. For 250 years, scholars have struggled to unroll and read a collection of 1,800 carbonized and crumbling papyrus scrolls found in the wealthy Villa of the Papyri at Herculaneum. In the 21st century, promising new multi-spectral imaging technologies (enlisted by the National Library in Naples and Brigham Young University) reveal text that has not been seen for 2,000 years. As archaeologists examine the partially excavated Villa of the Papyri, a new question emerges: Is there another library still buried at Herculaneum?"--Container
