Old Science!

My wife and I are on vacation in Europe.

So far it’s amazing, and speaking of mental health (my last article), vacations would probably perform well in a randomized controlled trial. Imagine randomizing people to be included in the “vacation” group… I’d sign up for that experiment! Anyway…

We visited the Museum Plantin-Moretus / Prentenkabinet in Antwerp – a museum that has some of the oldest printing presses in the world.

Guess what I found in there? – SUPER OLD SCIENCE.

Anatomy! Circa the 1500's

Unfortunately, my French and Flemish are neither too good / existent, so I couldn’t read any historical details. But it was really cool seeing old human anatomy as well as some original copper plates used to make copies.

Here’s more:

ahh yes, ye olde muscles

Then there was some natural sciences, too – looked like biology and physics. Cool!

ye olde biology and physics

Very cool stuff.

Anyway, just thought I’d share these with you.

More adventures to come!

Thanks so much for reading.


Share the love!
