Ireland's oldest manuscript to go on display

Ireland's oldest known manuscript, the Codex Usserianius Primus, or First Book of Ussher, is to go on display following conservation by Trinity College Dublin. The work is believed to date to the 5th Century AD, centuries before the better known Book of Kells.
