Disappearing images

You might notice that images to some of the papyri you’ve already classified have disappeared. We’ve removed them following a request from the Egypt Exploration Society, who own the Oxyrhynchus collection of papyri. I’ll be meeting them and we hope to bring the images back soon, but in the meantime don’t worry – your hard work is safe and we’re working hard to analyse the more than 5 million classifications you’ve already provided which are of immense value.

In the meantime, there are still images to be classified so keep up the good work.
