Seb Falk will introduce the methods and instruments of medieval astronomy. Astronomers in medieval universities and monasteries refined ancient theories, developed new ways of calculating and presenting information, and above all invented complex, ingenious instruments like astrolabes. Seb will explain some of these and show that perhaps the Dark Ages were not as dark as often thought.
