500 Year Recorde


It is the 500th birthday of Welshman Dr Robert Recorde, inventor of the "equals" sign: you can see the story here. It is only about 7 years since Dr Recorde was miraculously reincarnated by Hafal to celebrate the birth of the charity ("Hafal" means "equal" or should I say "= = =") with the assistance of longstanding and revered Hafal manager Evan Thomas who has since retired but bore an uncanny resemblance to the high-flying Tudor sage and mathematician.
