Hi coconuts,

Stones might have been used to clean palimpsest.

Great guessing coconuts.

I suppose some of the use for palimpsest could have been graffiti or art, although existing examples tend to be more of literature or cultural heritage , including legal contract.

Ah, I omitted to say that the great guess from coconuts was actually not the answer.

Close enough, Booklover.

Palimpsest is leather, often from a calf, used for recording in ancient times. Stones (or other objects) would erase text from softened skin to be reused. Special techniques reveal the previous writing for study.

Over to you,

Is it cheating to google the definition?
