          This is one of the most popular of our seminars from May 2006. It is not "live video" of visiting prof Doug Allen from Simon Fraser University, but rather I have recorded and edited live audio of his presentation and audience comments/interaction coordinated it with screen capture of his absolutely fascinating slides on the history of duels. The audio from the audience needed a bit of editing as Doug's lapel mic - not surprisingly - doesn't do too good of a job of picking up audience comments - but you'll be surprised what a bit of processing can recover!! Enjoy (JF)

He explains how cost gravity drives human history by continuously breaking political structures built on monopolies of technological power.

                    The prospect of an apprenticeship attracted thousands of youths to the guild masters of early modern London. Where did apprentices come from, what became of them in the city, and how did this system impact shape the development of Europe's largest city? The presenters will draw on their recent research to illustrate the economics of craft apprenticeship, and the interaction of this training institution with economic change prior to industrialisation.
