K. says Bruce Barker-Benfield curator of manuscripts at the Bodleian The manuscript contains both the Gospel of Luke text and commentary on it called a gloss written in the margins It is one of the few books to survive from that time with its original cover and is in remarkable condition Honey says Zachs an honorary fellow at the University of Edinburgh wanted to know what kind of animal hide was used to make the white leather cover of his book and in 2012 agreed to open the book to investigation by Collins’s lab The manuscript became the centerpiece of the May symposium which organizers describe as a model for "a 360-degree study of any book" Collins already had developed a method to identify ancient species by differences in the amino acid sequences of collagen and other proteins preserved in fossils His team soon realized that the proteins in parchment offered a new line of evidence about the animals whose skin was used and about the economics of bookmaking in medieval Europe "With books you have year after year of pristine information about the medieval world of animal husbandry" says Stinson who collaborates with Collins But no librarian would let them snip a bit of ancient parchment for collagen testing "It’s even harder to sample a rare book than human fossils or teeth" Collins says So Collins’s postdoctoral fellow in York Sarah Fiddyment developed a nondestructive method to extract ancient proteins from parchment Librarians often "dry clean" a rare manuscript by rubbing it lightly with a polyvinyl chloride eraser which pulls tiny fibers off the page in curled debris that’s usually swept away Fiddyment discovered that the eraser shavings captured proteins from the parchment which she could isolate and analyze with a mass spectrometer She had just developed this method when Zachs reached out to Collins and the researchers applied it to the Gospel of Luke They found that the book’s cover was made of the skin of roe deer a species common in the United Kingdom But the strap was made from a larger deer species either native red deer or fallow deer introduced from continental Europe possibly by the Normans after their invasion in 1066 Fiddyment speculates that the book may have captured a transitional moment when native roe deer were declining and landowners and monasteries stocked parks with bigger deer The Normans established scriptoriums in many monasteries in the 11th century and their appetite for animal skins must have had a "huge impact" on the animals raised notes Naomi Sykes a zooarchaeologist at the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom But few historical records preserve clues to this shift As for the stuff of the manuscript itself the Sotheby’s catalog described it as vellum or fine parchment usually made from young animals "probably calfskin" But Jií Vnouek a conservator of parchment and paper at the Royal Library of Copenhagen and a graduate student of Collins’s at York noticed while studying the book that some pages were of lower quality They had dark hair follicles and pores as well as scars from parasites—a far cry from the uniform white parchment typical of calfskin "This was some strange kind of cow" says Vnouek who suggested systematically sampling all the pages with the eraser method The researchers did so and found to their surprise that those unusual pages were goat thought to be rare and used only in less wealthy areas Collins says This suggests that even established scriptoriums sometimes ran out of desirable skins from calves and lambs Perhaps the monks were letting sheep live to adulthood in order to get more wool which was the backbone of the medieval economy Collins says or perhaps herds were simply too small Further analysis showed an unusual pattern: The book was comprised of skins from an estimated 85 calves 105 sheep and half a goat When the team showed a graphic (below) of the complicated organization of the manuscript at the meeting the scholars were startled "This interleaving of calf and sheep is unexpected" says Peter Stallybrass a historian at the University of Pennsylvania and co-organizer of the symposium "This shows what these new kinds of scientific approaches can do" Mining the molecules of an ancient book Researchers applied new methods to probe the history of a single 12th century book the Gospel of Luke treating the parchment as a biological sample They uncovered a pattern of interleaved calfskin and sheepskin with goatskin used as a last resort 14 mm 23 mm Frontflyleaf Back flyleaf 3 1 10 11 2 18 19 26 27 34 35

of the 156-page manuscript came right before a new scribe with a distinct script took over the main text That change along with spelling errors and omitted words in the commentary flanking the main text suggests a crisis "A major trauma happened in the history of this book" Barker-Benfield says "I suspect the idiot scribe [who made mistakes] was sacked" During the May viewing of the Gospel of Luke the researchers took a break to examine other medieval manuscripts from the Bodleian’s collections Almost immediately they spotted pages in another manuscript that resembled those now identified as goat in Zachs’s book Visual inspection suggested that this manuscript from the Christ Church scriptorium in Canterbury and dating to about 1125 CE to 1150 CE, from the animals whose skins are
