Good morrow, friends!
Tavern Talks are back! Same location, slightly different format. The main change is that we will only have one speaker so as to allow for a more full talk and for longer Q&A. This month we’ll be covering the season topic of snowflakes! Xanthippe Ouranina will be sharing with us the medieval scientific understanding of snowflakes, who wrote about them and what they thought.
I’m looking forward to hearing more! And we hope you’ll come out.
All the best to you!
