Congratulations to Jeff Wigelsworth, who has been busy since he successfully defended his Ph.D. in our department twelve months ago. Between then and starting a postdoctoral appointment at Dalhousie University a few weeks back, he wrote a book that has just been published by Greenwood Press. Science and Technology in Medieval European Life is a textbook for undergraduates that seeks to dispell the popular view of medieval Europe as a "Dark Age" of intellectual stagnation, showing instead how scientific and technological achievement thrived. We here at What's Up are firmly of the opinion that this is a book not only to read and admire, but to buy. To that end, click here.
