After the fall of the Roman Empire, elephants virtually disappeared from Western Europe.
Since there was no real knowledge of how this animal actually looked, illustrators had to rely on oral and written transmissions to morphologically reconstruct the elephant, thus reinventing an actual existing creature. This tree diagram traces the evolution of the elephant depiction throughout the middle ages up to the age of enlightenment.

New on Value Added.
Gas prices are no longer conveying any useful information than we don’t already know.
A rise in companies fleeing the UK stock market is another blow to London’s status as Europe’s top financial center, adding to the gloom around a lack of initial public offerings.
“There’s no denying that Brexit made the admin and expense side of a London listing more of a problem. While the UK would love to rebrand itself as a haven for fast-growing, stimulating tech stories in particular, we are some way from that happening.”
Wow. Look how openly they describe the illegality of the referendum across the pond! Makes you realise quite how muted our media has become.
"When Johnson is driven from office, and it won’t be long now, he will be the first British prime minister to leave in disgrace.
