Prince Charles To Present Ancient Koran To UAE

Prince Charles is to present a digital replica of the ancient Koran fragments discovered by the University of Birmingham, in a visit to the United Arab Emirates.

The copy of the manuscript will be a centrepiece of a year of cultural links between the UK and the Gulf state.

The original Koran fragment, possibly the oldest in the world, remains in the University of Birmingham.

The manuscript, at least 1,370 years old, was hailed as a major discovery.

The University of Birmingham's find came when a manuscript which it had held since the 1920s was radio-carbon dated last year and found to be much older than anyone had expected.
