Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen
) and Will (Hugh Dancy
) sometimes discuss Hannibal's use of a method for mentally storing information called a "memory palace." This is not an invention of either the show's writers or of Thomas Harris
, who mentions Lecter using a memory palace in his books about the killer; rather, it is a method of aiding memory that dates back to ancient Rome.
