Tangled Bank

The new Tangled Bank is up at The Voltage Gate. As ever, I'm hugely impressed by the effort that hosts put into these carnivals. This time you can learn about Ancient Greek astronomy and medicine alongside your modern genetics.

I did not exactly have a classical education, but I do have an Ancient Greek anecdote. A friend once went on a family holiday to Greece, and her Dad spent the whole trip trying to talk to the locals in Ancient Greek. He eventually located the airport by asking for "the place from where the large silver birds fly".
