Dr SkySkull, founder and senior manager of your monthly history of science blog carnival, has posted the 45th edition of The Giants’ Shoulders at Skull in the Stars and as always it is a fascinating, titillating, exhilarating, scintillating and captivating potpourri of histsci delight. So put on the reading specs and mosey on over to Dr SkySkull’s abode and drink your fill at his history of science well of knowledge.

The 46th edition of the world’s numero uno history of science blog carnival will be hosted by Romeo Vitelli at his Providentia blog on 16th April 2012. We are having problems with the Blog Carnivals website so submissions please either direct to the host or to me (and I will forward them) before or on 15th  April.

The 47th edition of Giants’ Shoulders is being hosted by a newcomer to our blog carnival the Medical Heritage Library on 16th May. You can have the historic chance of hosting either the last Giants’ Shoulders #48 in its fourth year of existence on 16th June or the very first edition in its fifth year on 16th of July! Book now to avoid disappointment! Contact either Dr SkySkull at Skulls in the Stars of Thony C here at the Renaissance Mathematicus.


The Giant’s Shoulders #45 is out!

March 17, 2012

The Giant’s Shoulders #45, the history of science blog carnival, is up at my home blog Skulls in the Stars!

In this carnival, we encounter:

  • murderous doctors,
  • body snatchers,
  • unspeakable eye treatments,
  • and Newton’s apple tree among other things!

The next carnival will be hosted by Romeo Vitelli over at Providentia!  For the moment, entries can be submitted via or directly to the host blog.  We may migrate away from using blogcarnival in the near future, so check this site for updates!
