I bought some of the first sugar that came here from Madeira; which island had been subdued a few years before by the King of Portugal, and sugar had begun to be grown there; and I had some of the first.
The moon was in the first quarter that night.
Sunrise in Madeira was at 5:52 AM and sunset was at 5:59 PM.
I would love to work with people who want to be a part of a digital humanities project mapping the daily life of the Italian Renaissance in detail. Do you have graphic design skills? Or are you a Neo4j/ASP.NET developer? Or just someone who loves the Renaissance like myself and would like to help build the knowledge base? Do get in touch!
