Catch up 190616

  • Cédric Villani reflects on winning the Field Medal in 2010.
  • Remember the Antikythera mechanism?  They've now revealed more than 3000 characters of antient greek decorating the outside of the gear-case to show that it was a sort of daft fortune-teller.
  • Here's something rather sweet.  Matt Hopwood walked from Avebury [antient Neolithic stone circle] to Lindifarne [antient Christian monastery] talking to ordinary folks along ley-lines, gathering love stories along the way.  The variety of accents is part of its charm. Here's a documentary / interview about/with Matt.
