The History of Astronomy
- A Very Short Introduction
- By: Michael Hoskin

- Length: 3 hrs and 46 mins
This is a fascinating introduction to the history of Western astronomy, from prehistoric times to the origins of astrophysics in the mid-19th century. Historical records are first found in Babylon and Egypt, and after two millennia the arithmetical astronomy of the Babylonians merged with the Greek geometrical approach to culminate in the Almagest of Ptolemy.
