AI unlocks ancient text owned by Caesar's family

It’s interesting that much of the research that made this possible was conducted at the University of Kentucky, here in Lexington. We’re not exactly known as a center for ancient studies (normally more famous for basketball). Several years ago, I reached out to Professor Brent Seales and he was kind enough to give me a tour of his labs and provide some insight into his research. At the time, he was also examining a Dead Sea Scroll along with the Herculaneum papyri. Seale’s work was focused on only transcribing the characters, leaving the translation to others. It was truly fascinating to learn about his groundbreaking work.
