We will be reading The Burgundians: A Vanished Empire (Bart Van Loo). It's the story of 1,111+ years of dynastic struggles in Northern Europe, including military campaigns, art, architecture, and music, and a few bad marriages!

A massively popular book (not just the publisher says this) with highly positive reviews from thousands of people - means we have a good one here - you really should join us!

 In the early-1950's diagnosing medical conditions was greatly assisted by organizing the human body into 7 levels. This led some educational Institutions to begin naming their biological departments as "Life Sciences".  Within these new departments there emerged areas referred to as Bio-Chemistry, Bio-Physics, and Bio-Math, followed by Bio-Medicine, Bio-Engineering, Bio-Metrics, and more.
