Around 250 BCE, Erathosthenes accurately calculated the circumference of the Earth. His calculation was the first made in history, a famous achievement. What exactly did he do? Why did he do it? And, what was the impact of his discovery?

In this five-week course, you will explore the events, technical challenges, and natural philosophy, all of which contributed to Erathostenes accurate calculation.

Enrol before Wednesday 30 August, to receive our Early Bird fee $148.50.
