Amazing what they are able to do. I can't wait to see everything they're able to read.
Can this really be true?
If it is, it's just fantastic!!
It seems to be on the level and is now widely reported.
etc etc etc
This really brings to the light that Norwegian journalists are UNCULTURED, IDIOTIC AND CRIMINALLY STUPID individiuals who ought to be expunged from the human race by shoving their worthless drivel down their throats and make them choke on it.
I haven't seen a single, damn word about this..:grumpy:
Makes me wonder how they ended up in a ancient garbage dump in Egypt. Perhaps practice copys of the scribes in training?
That is one very good option, here's another one:
A lot of the salvaged "saga" literature was found as thermal isolation material in the Icelanders' humble dwellings.
Perhaps ancient papyri were used in a similar manner by the Egyptians?
(and later on, ended up as garbage?)
Thermal isolation...in Egypt ? More likely it was used for TP.
Anyway, this is very exciting stuff !! :surprised
Yeah, I know, that IS a rather embarassing question (to me at least)..
I'm going with the toilet paper. Bet it was softer then dried palm leafs
No wonder they're in a bad shape, then.. :uhh:
Thermal isolation is a possability. It does get cold in the desert (at night). Insulation also works to keep things cool too.
But I have to agree it was probably better than leaves, and what else do you with scrap paper/notes if it's not needed and you already have the fire lit
