Update on the Jubilees Palimpsest Project

THE JUBILEES PALIMPSEST PROJECT has some 2017 updates on its website which I have not yet noted. The project is devoted to technological reconstruction of (inter alia) the under-text of a Latin palimpsest manuscript containing the Book of Jubilees and a fragment of the Testament of Moses. In particular, they have now published a detailed reconstruction of the layout of the codex with sample photographic pages covering a few columns of Jubilees and, at the very end, the full text of the Latin Testament of Moses.

Past posts on the project are here, here, and here.
