    this could be useful for understanding literacy levels in the ancient world if it was more than just a nameless someone telling us on youtube.

      he’s from the university of chicago. i wouldn’t pass along some dilettante.

    I know you wouldn’t, but he still has no name and I can’t check his sources or find him helpful in trying to formulate my thinking in a similar area. I want the book, with the author, not a video. I never believe a video wherever he blinking comes from. Blitheringdum came from Durham and look what happened…

    or she’d also complain that while it is superior to those Nottingham videos, that it’s an authority we’re supposed to believe providing an authoritative account without any providing any evidence and that is the problem with this video culture.
