At the end of long works, all pages of the site finally have new design. All my excuses for the discomfort caused during this length. The work of form being fulfilled, I can dedicate myself again to contents. In plan for the moment :
- the development of rubric "To visit", with an inventory of museums and monuments useful on our subject.
- the installation of a rubric on the a posteriori representations of the ancient medicine.
- the creation of new biographical chips of ancient doctors (already 11 news for the letter A, 4 for the letter B and 2 for the letter C).
- and of course, the continuation of bibliography which counts 60 chips to date (109 others attempts it of creation, divided between the "roman", "greek", "divinities", "general informations", "medical instruments", "ancient texts " et "Others (Novels, films...)" categories).
