History Carnival Number 30 is up over a ClioWeb.
Also we are in the longest period since 113 B.C. in which no one has crossed the Rhine with fire and sword.
This obviously needs to be remedied. I'll bring the swords, so who will bring the fire and the boat?
Somewhere a group of historians is probably planning this already. After all we've had MIT & MythBusters Take on Archimedes' "Death Ray" , Archaeologist Peter Vemming is working on a 22-ton fourteenth-century trebuchet at Warwick castle in southern England , and the 'Tree canon' myth (and all its questionable history) on mythbusters; why not this?
