The Giant’s Shoulders #48 is out!

The carnival was a little delayed, and my announcement of it is even more belated, but the 48th edition of The Giant’s Shoulders history of science blog carnival is up at Clerestories!  In the carnival, you can read:

  • The history of previous transits of Venus;
  • The story of Mary Lacy, a shipwright who published her autobiography — in 1773;
  • A 1936 letter from a young girl to Albert Einstein, and his response;
  • A brief, painful history of dentistry;
  • and much more!

Thanks to Sienna for an excellent carnival!

We don’t yet have any hosts lined up, as far as I know, for the next few months of the carnival — if you’re willing to host at your blog, please please please let us know!
