Raising muckles

Even as the next set of participants gear up for round 3 of #SciFund, people are still talking about round 1! A piece in The Economist titled, “Many a mickle makes a muckle”, mentions one of our big round 1 success stories.

Kristina Killgrove, an anthropologist at the University of West Florida, has already raised over $12,000 on RocketHub to examine the DNA of Roman skeletons.

Now, if only we knew what mickles and muckles were. Curse you, Economist, with your sophisticated economics lingo!
