The lost plays of Sophocles? The epic prequel to The Iliad? "A collection of Greek and Roman writings so vast it could redraw the map of classical civilisation"? "The classical equivalent of finding the holy grail"? "A second Renaissance"? Lost Christian gospels?? Five million words of this stuff, all discovered by multi-spectral imaging techniques?

That's a pretty amazing story. Now that I'm looking for a job, it almost makes me want to consider a new career as a classics scholar.
