When Am I Researching Now?


Chris, the most highly allocthonous of the SciBlings, just did something neat over at his place that immediately called for emulation. He’s a geologist, and he’s graphed what periods of Earth’s history he’s been studying when. So, Dear Reader, here’s my graph: not as pretty as Chris’s, but hopefully legible. You may note that I specialise in the later 1st Millennium, that my work in the Neolithic must be rather superficial, that I have never worked with the Mesolithic nor the Early Iron Age nor the Middle Ages, and that I plan to return to Bronze Age studies next year.

Oh, and one more thing. My graph covers six thousand years. Chris’s covers billions.

    Interesting. Maybe I should make a graph as well.

    Do you have any intention on making one about subject instead of chronological period?

    Hmm… Not sure how to represent, graphically, the relationship between subject I’ve covered, not to mention the innumerable ones I haven’t.

    You can always base it on Kristian K´s standard method of explanation: a sinus curve…

    I think I’m gonna express it through improvised dancing. I am, as you no doubt know, a modern shaman.
