Early Days of Writing
Play Video

In the ancient world, a huge amount of labour went into the making of papyrus, ink, and writing implements. And it was all made of natural materials, ingeniously transformed.

The First Fragments exhibition runs in the Chester Beatty, Dublin, until 3 September 2023, and entrance is free. Further details: chesterbeatty.ie/exhibitions/first-fragments/

Acknowledgments: we are grateful to the Chester Beatty for granting us permission to film on location, and especially grateful to Dr Jill Unkel (Curator of Western Collections) for facilitating our visit.
