Village Fete – come and take part in heathen cermonies!

Well, not really.

But anyway – it’s my annual plug for the Newbold on Stour Village Fete.

This Saturday (11th August) 2pm start on the village green – there’s games and drink and food and stuff so if you’re knocking about South Warwickshire why not pop over for a bit of fun.

If you don’t know where to come it’s here.

New podcast mini–series

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/audio/more/medislam/

A new podcast mini-series is up, this one related to Peter Pormann’s new book on Medieval Islamic Medicine:

http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/audio/more/medislam/

Lot’s of stuff covered in this one, but it’s very interesting. There’s a good discussion in episode 3 on Baghdad and its importance in the translation of Greek and other learning into Arabic, and thus by a process of the spread of ideas back to europe. Considering the current state of that city it’s good to be reminded of its critical role as a hub of knowledge and learning.

Anyway, hope you enjoy it!
