ancient manuscript pieced

This very old. A manuscript of about 4,000 years old. It was pieced together at the Cairo Museum, under the leadership of the Egyptologist dr. Wael Sherbiny. The text and the drawing are on a leather roll with a length of 2.5 meter.

Read more about this beautiful find and the painstaking work of the team that worked on it.
