Scientia Pro Publica #27, hosted at Melliferax, features my somewhat disorganized post on the Medieval Climate Anomaly, “…and the sun was given the power to scorch people with fire.” Melliferax is a fascinating young blog mostly focused upon bees, one of the most fascinating of insects, and the keeping thereof. Which reminds me that at some point I should translate the Anglo-Saxon bee charm for the sheer pleasure of it.

Carnivalesque #61 (ancient/medieval), hosted at Even in a Little Thing, features my brilliant idea to fuse the Western genre with Settlement-Era Iceland. Not to be excessively modest, or anything. It was also the host’s birthday a few days ago, so go be nice to the man.

These carnivals link to a number of other fascinating posts. Those of you interested in science or history (respectively) owe it to yourselves to check them out. Google Reader has swelled with the addition of several new blogs this evening.

[Incidentally, if people use carnivalia as a plural, does that make the singular carnivalium?]
