Palimpsest

Palimpsest. (Just the word.)

The third spur for this issue takes a more free-form approach than the others. Palimpsest (literally, ‘scraped again’) traditionally refers to a manuscript page which has been scraped blank and written over, but has become more broadly used for things that are layered over one another. Other contexts the word is use in include architecture and astronomy.
