The Society’s collection of papyri from Oxyrhynchus is now the subject of an exciting social science project. The papyri were excavated between 1897 and 1907 and the work of translating the texts written on the thousands of fragments in the collection has been ongoing ever since (see here). Now you can lend a hand by visiting the Ancient Lives site here!
For further information please see this BBC news story on the project.
