Something new, something old ...

Palaeographyalso spelt paleography (from Greek παλαιόςpalaiós, "old" and γράφειν graphein, "to write") is the study of ancient writing. Included in the discipline is the practice of deciphering, reading, and dating historical manuscripts, and the cultural context of writing, including the methods with which writing and books were produced, and the history of scriptoria.

While marking my books today, I learnt about this!

Interesting, isn't it!
