Description
International experts such as Patrick Moore and J. V. Field have contributed material examining the pre-telescopic era of studying astronomy, what instruments were used, the effects of developments in mathematics and measurement, and the diversity of early views of cosmology and astrology. Most importantly, the achievements of European astronomers are linked with those of ancient Egypt, India, Mesopotamia, and the Islamic World.
