The Physics of History, taught by award-winning Professor David J. Helfand of Columbia University, gives you the background to understand how scientists know what they do about the past.  These 24 richly illustrated lectures cover an astonishing range of cases in which physics has helped to redefine history – in astronomy, archeology, geology, climatology, art history, and other fields.  Extremely rewarding and enlightening, The Physics of History enhances your appreciation of both science and history by addressing questions such as how old is the Earth? When did the extinction of dinosaurs occur? 

Class is facilitated by Jim Lamal.
