Crowdsourcing: ancient beauty

I'm thinking of starting a second blog on a related theme: makeup/beauty in the ancient world (specifically ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt). I have a PhD in a related area, so it's right up my alley.

I'm struggling to come up with a snazzy blog title, though, and I would love suggestions. "Ass's Milk" or "Crocodile Shit" might give the wrong impression (though those were popular ingredients in ancient skincare recipes). "Ancient Beauty" is probably too bland. Any ideas?

Also, does this sound like something anyone would read? I think I could have a lot of fun with it, at least! I've already brainstormed a whole list of post ideas.

  1. I would read the shit out of that blog. (I sadly do not have any clever blog title suggestions.)

    I'm terrible at blog names, so no suggestions unfortunately.

  3. That actually sounds super fascinating! It's the sort of stuff I'm already interested in learning about, but am too lazy to research! ;)
