Isn’t it strange that most of the mnemonic techniques currently in use have been around relatively unchanged since their invention in Ancient Greece? Was there really no better way of memorising things? Maybe there was but it was forgotten.

Druids, for example, must have had their own method because they had to memorise thousands and thousands of verses during their training. If only they had written down how they did it!
