A week delayed, but worth the wait: the 47th edition of The Giant’s Shoulders history of science blog carnival is up at The Medical Heritage Library! In this edition, you can read about:
- the politics of Isaac Newton’s knighthood,
- the gruesome history of eating corpses as medicine,
- the story of Lady Mary Montagu, who introduced smallpox innoculation to London,
- the Great New York Starvation Challenge of 1881,
- and much more!
A very hearty thanks to Hannah for assembling such a nice carnival!
Once again, we have run out of hosts for future editions of the carnival! If you are willing to host a future edition (including and especially June), please let myself or ThonyC, the carnival organizers, know! You can either send an email or leave a comment on this post.
