HIS102H5 • A History of Discoveries and Inventions in the Ancient, Medieval, and Early Modern World.

This course challenges us to reconsider what we think we know about discoveries and inventions, and to reassess how they have shaped our world. It outlines debates around theories of progress, significance, continuity and change, and cause and consequence; guides students through the interpretation of primary and secondary sources; and introduces the discipline of history while helping students develop the research and writing skills that are part of the historian’s craft.
