Revisiting the past

In order to refresh my memory about Aristotle's theory of Natural Slavery (relevant to some work I'm doing on robots), I spent a bit of time rereading the chapter on slavery from Paul Cartledge's The Greeks, a book I reviewed for Bryn Mawr Classical Review back in 1994. This is the first time for ages I've gone back to some serious reading of Greek history, which used to be at the core of my research and teaching. It's a slightly odd experience.

And while we're on the subject, rogueclassicism brought to my attention the 2005 report from the Roman Gask Project. I worked on this project when it started, and had worked with the directors for some years before that. So it's nice to see how they're getting on.
