New History of Science Blog

How awesome is it that The Guardian has a History of Science blog! Vanessa Heggie opens with a fascinating essay on Sports Doping and Rebekah Higgitt answers the question: what is an historian doing on Guardian Science Blogs:-
Lest you bristle at the presumption of a historian commenting on science, I hope the posts in this blog will show, firstly, that science, its policy and communication can benefit from historical insights and, secondly, that the idea that history can be written and taught without paying any attention to science, medicine and technology is, frankly, ludicrous.
Read and enjoy.
