Beneath the Night: How the stars have shaped the history of humankind

Stuart Clark (Author)
Available

Description

From Stone Age to space age, people have looked up at the stars and been inspired by their beauty, their patterns, and their majesty.

Beneath the Night is a history of humanity, told through our relationship with the night sky. From prehistoric cave art and Ancient Egyptian zodiacs to the modern era of satellites and space exploration, Stuart Clark explores a fascination shared across the world and throughout millennia. It is one that has shaped our scientific understanding; helped us navigate the terrestrial world; provided inspiration for our poets, artists and philosophers; and it has given us a place to project our hopes and fears. In the stars, we can see our past - and ultimately, our fate.

This is the awe-inspiring story of the universe, and our place within it.
