It’s back to the past, in a classical way, on this episode of ThunkTink! Andrea and Casey discuss the Trojan War and if the myth of the Trojan horse indicates there was an ancient practice of gifting large temporary statuary made of compostable materials as peace offerings. They learn about the less famous cities of northern Greece and brainstorm on a slice-of-life style sitcom that takes place in one of these ancient coastal towns. And they discuss biology! What was the ecology of ancient Greece like? How did it change by removing large mammalian predators and herbivores? How come we don’t hear about the ancient Greek deer boom?!
