In this episode we have as our guest Professor Richard Lynn Kremer. He is an emeritus professor of History of Dartmouth College, specialising in the history of science, medicine and technology. He is also the Curator of the Collection of Scientific Instruments at Dartmouth. Our conversation addresses one of Professor Kremer’s main research topics, mathematical astronomy, from Ptolemy to the early modern period. Currently he is part of the ALFA project at the Observatory of Paris and focuses on tables and computations in the medieval and early modern periods.
