Technology to Preserve Dubrovnik’s Cultural Heritage
Modern technologies, especially those involving imaging, have been used in the last two decades to recover formerly "lost" cultural heritage. Perhaps the best-known example is writings by the ancient Greek mathematician in the "Archimedes Palimpsest," which was erased and overwritten with a Christian prayerbook in 1229 CE. The original writings in that book included the only known copy of the "Method of Mechanical Theorems," where Archimedes derived the principles of integral calculus nearly two millennia before Newton and Leibnitz. Other examples of recovery of cultural heritage include a medical textbook by Galen, erased writings at St. Catherine's Monastery in Sinai, and a c.1491 map of the world by Henricus Martellus Germanus.

Such work has the potential to encourage "academic tourism," defined as visits to libraries and other depositories by academics interested in discovering cultural heritage.
