Howard Croft column: Unexpected patient in the waiting area

I was first issued with hearing aids almost ten years ago, with a few replacements supplied along the way since then. One was crunched like a raw prawn by the dog, another disappeared during a walk on a cold and windy day, both incidents requiring a bit of creative story-telling at the audiology clinic.

Nostalgia: Huge expansion of schools

When Ben Jonson (1573-1637), the dramatist and poet, wrote disparagingly of Shakespeare that he had “small Latin and less Greek”, we might think differently that anyone not of the gentry and educated at a small, provincial grammar school at Stratford must have been very privileged, not disadvantaged, to have known any Greek at all. Yet, in fact, Latin was then taught throughout the country in its many old and new grammar schools and Greek was not merely exclusive to the ancient foundations at Winchester, Eton and St Paul’s.
