A piece of papyrus used to make a mask worn by a mummy, may contain the oldest known copy of a gospel.
The recycled material bearing part of the Gospel of Mark was written in the first century and predates the next oldest surviving copy of gospel texts by about a century, according to experts.
The text, which is set to be published, was extracted using a technique that allows glue used in the construction of mummy masks to be dissolved, without harming ink on the papyrus.
