Muscarella, The Lie Became Great, 21. See, for instance, “The Adventure of the Devil’s Foot,” where Holmes, while in the middle of a case, discourses for two hours on “Celts, arrowheads, and shards.” Sherlock Holmes 2, 476. Holmes also knows Latin, and from this one might infer that he is versed in the history and literature of the classical world. A Study in Scarlet, in Sherlock Holmes 1, 120. He would, of course, make a brilliant archaeologist today, with his command of forensic science, his expertise in analytical chemistry, and his vast knowledge of material culture and the minutiae of daily life.
