'Uncovering Hidden Text on a 500-Year-Old Map That Guided Columbus' by
Greg Miller for Map Lab.
A brief report on the imaging project at the Beinecke Library, Yale
University, led by Chet Van Duzer, to try to retrieve the faded
inscriptions on the c.1491 Martellus world map.
'When the project is complete, probably sometime next year, the images
will be available for scholars and the general public to examine on the
website of theBeinecke Digital Library at Yale.'
