Ours is an age of incredible breakthroughs in science and technology: man has blazed a trail into outer space, harnessed the energy of the atomic nucleus, built "thinking" machines and unravelled the mystery of the living cell. Humanity is moving into ever new and fascinating fields, but there is one field of activity which, while being old as the hills, is no less fascinating.
