The Giant’s Shoulders #44 — The Grand Bazaar Edition — is now up!

The 44th edition of The Giant’s Shoulders, the history of science blog carnival, is up over at The Renaissance Mathematicus! In it, you can read about:

  • The tale of the first woman to go around the world — in the guise of a man!
  • The use of scientific knowledge of poisoning in early detective novels,
  • A Vitruvian man earlier than Leonardo’s!

Thanks to Thony Christie for a great edition!  

Next edition of the carnival will be hosted right here, at Skulls in the Stars, hosted by moi!  Entries are due on the 15th of March, and can be submitted via, or directly to the host blog.
