Questions

History of Science – the little bits I have been able to find seem VERY heavily weighted towards Europe and America. ?!  What did the Incas and Aztecs and Chinese and Arabia and other non-Europeans think?   The early Greeks:  air, earth, fire, water.  The humors: blood, phlegm, bile and black bile.

What’s in that bag of dirt?

What do Disney/ Dubai and the history of the Natural Sciences (in Europe and America) have to do with my back yard?
