Good work Tero. You can do "The Bronze Age Collapse: how civilisations end" next time eh?
Rationalia relies on voluntary donations. There is no obligation of course, but if you value this place and want to see it continue please consider making a small donation towards the forum's running costs.
Details on how to do that can be found here.

Thanks. I am giving a short class in March still. More chance to experience how these seniors want to view history. Since it's in Europe there is likely some class member that has done geneology of their family and has to stop me for some amusing fact.

Genus humanum genus desperatum
Cui spes unica famae in luto se volvens
Superare sues in faece volutantes
Mente demissa quodlibet canticum exsibila
Mente sana esse iucundum est
Thank you very much pueris virgatis stellatisque

Have any of them come up with the Henry Ford line?
