Ancient documents discovered

(KWWL) A sophomore at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa made an incredible discovery in January: documents, thousands of years old.

“Nobody knew they were there, ” said Philip Freeman, Professor of Classics at the Decorah, Iowa college. “They’d been sitting in this box for decades.”

Some things you expect to find on a college campus, but not this.

“Some ancient Egyptian papyri,” Freeman said. “These are documents that are almost 2000 years old … Very few of them survive, and most of them are not in very good condition.”
