Papyrus Stories presents and analyses various pieces of ancient text on a range of mediums, such as parchment, pottery, stone, and wood, to discuss stories of daily life in ancient cultures that survive on these scrap pieces. While the website’s main focus is on Egypt, there are also a range of Greek and Latin texts that tell stories of these cultures.

Notable posts include “Ancient Same Sex Love Spells” on the use of magic for same-sex desire in Greece and “Birthday Parties on the Roman Frontier“, which analyses letters, lists, and other records that provide insight on social activities in Rome.
