Failure in Hindsight

“To the regret of all students of Roman history, much is lost of both these long and fascinating accounts of the first hundred years of the empire. (Will the missing pages be discovered one day, hidden away in some ancient attic or in the basement of a ruined monastery? It is every classical scholar’s dream that he will be the one to find them.) – Charles Van Doren, A History of Knowledge

It’s the romantic in me that squeals at this paragraph and patiently awaits a National Treasure sequel. (Don’t judge… I blame my father for this.)
