It's funny how you have a man known as the Oncoming Storm, another known as the Dark One, a girl who stood up to the weeping angels, a man whom death has no hold over, another who survived Pompeii and will undoubtedly go on to do greater things, and it all pales in comparison to the capital E Vil! that the man in the bottom right corner is.

Unlocking the scrolls of Herculaneum

In 79 CE, in Herculaneum, the Villa of Papyri contained a library of 1,785 papyrus scrolls. The library was packed in cases ready to be moved to safety. The scrolls were charred but preserved - the only surviving library of Antiquity. Modern science has enabled them to be read. Many contain previously unknown works.
