Jason and the Argo

So there are a bunch of Greeks who have re-created the Argo, using only what they hope are original-type tools, who want to head for Colchis. They’re calling for volunteers to row the thing for 2.5 months, possibly up to 15 hours per day.

The problem I have with this is that Tim Severin did the Jason voyage (name of the book, just by the way) a number of years ago now. So it’s not a new idea in the slightest. Although, as the Ma points out, this time it’s the Greeks doing it, recreating some of their own culture.
