We know a lot about the Industrial Revolution. What it looked like, its historical significance and details of life during the time.
But what about how it smelled?
A new team of researchers, historians and computer scientists will explore the answer to that question and others like it. Funded by the European Union, the team behind the $3.3 million project called Odeuropa will spend three years identifying and recreating historical smells. It was announced this week and begins in January.
