Accelerator Deciphers Archimedes

According to an article from Wired Online, the lost writings of Archimedes have apparently been found. I’m sure that this is one of those times where you’d here him cry out, “Eureka!”
Apparently a bunch of SLACers at Stanford University are working to illuminate the text which was erased by a monk and written over for other purposes. Stanford also has a write up that can read here.
Apparently there’s a display regarding this up in The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, MD. For more about this display, click here.
Anyone up for a road trip to learn more about this? I hear it will be very enlightening.
