Intro to History of Science: Crash Course History of Science #1
We've been asking big questions for a really long time and we've all wanted to explore how we've sought to answer those questions through the centuries. Questions like, "What is stuff?" and "Where are we?" have inspired people all over the world to investigate. So lets dive in and see how we, as a people, have tried to figure this stuff out in this first episode of Crash Course History of Science!

Extra Credits - The History of Writing - Where the Story Begins - Extra History
How did the ancient civilization of Sumer first develop the concept of the written word? It all began with simple warehouse tallies in the temples, but as the scribes sought more simple ways to record information, those tallies gradually evolved from pictograms into cuneiform text which could be used to convey complex, abstract, or even lyrical ideas.
Extra Credits - The Alphabet - Origins of Writing - Extra History
Where did the alphabet come from? How did it develop, and why? The writing systems first developed in Sumer provided a basis for the written word, but their system of characters also inspired a shift to single phoneme systems where each letter represents a distinct sound.

IT'S HISTORY - The invention of Writing, Paper and Print! l HISTORY OF CHINA
The invention of script, paper and printing can be credited to the Chinese. It was in China that Cai Lun, in his emperor’s service, made the production of paper suitable for the masses. Originally planned as a means to wrap things in, it soon became obvious that paper was more suitable for writing than the common bamboo stick. Guy will explain, how the Chinese printed written pages long before Gutenberg was born, how Chinese writing actually works and how emperor Qin tried to establish the standardized Chinese Han Characters, or Hanzi, attempting to unify the writing symbols for his country. » The Complete PLAYLIST: http://bit.ly/HistoryOfChina

The evolution of the book - Julie Dreyfuss
View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-evoluti...
What makes a book a book? Is it just anything that stores and communicates information? Or does it have to do with paper, binding, font, ink, its weight in your hands, the smell of the pages? To answer these questions, Julie Dreyfuss goes back to the start of the book as we know it to show how these elements came together to make something more than the sum of their parts.

Ancient & Medieval Medicine: Crash Course History of Science #9
The history of medicine is about two of our big questions: one, what is life? What makes it so special, so fragile, so… goopy!? Two, how do we know what we know? Why should I take my doctor’s advice? Why are deep-fried Oreos bad for me? It may be tempting to look at medicine as a science that has simply progressed over time—that medicine used to be bad, and its history is a story of how it got better.

Inside the Mind of an Alchemist - Featuring Larry Principe - Bytesize Science
The world of alchemy is shrouded in mystery. Alchemists tirelessly sought the recipe for the Philosophers' Stone -- a substance that could turn any base metal into pure gold. The Philosophers' Stone would give its user untold wealth and power, so alchemists were known to operate under total secrecy. They worked in codes and symbols -- to reserve their great knowledge for only those who were deemed deserving. Instead of the chemical formulas used today, alchemists created elaborate, fantastic illustrations of dragons, warriors, and monsters to represent the chemical experiments they carried out. Centuries passed, and many historical alchemical texts and images remain undeciphered. Luckily for the history of science, we have brilliant minds like Larry Principe of Johns Hopkins University
Prof. Jim Al-Khalili presents - 1001 Inventions: Journeys from Alchemy to Chemistry
1001 Inventions: Journeys from Alchemy to Chemistry is a short animated lecture narrated by Professor Jim Al-Khalili. Learn about the fascinating story of the secret world of alchemy and how it became the foundation of the science of chemistry. The animated lecture takes young audiences on a journey through an exciting world of science from over one thousand years ago. It brings to life the contributions to the foundations of modern chemistry by lesser-known pioneers from ancient cultures and civilisations including the remarkable work of the 8th century pioneering polymath Jabir ibn Hayyan, also known as Geber. Lecture by Professor Jim Al-Khalili, renowned scientist, author and broadcaster.
Cathedrals & Universities
Cathedrals and Universities: Crash Course History of Science #11
Until roughly 1100, there were relatively few places of knowledge-making. Monasteries and abbeys had special rooms called scriptoria where monks copied manuscripts by hand. But the biggest places where knowledge was made were the Gothic cathedrals. Then Universities came along, too. This is the story of those two institutions!

Education in the Middle Ages
It’s the most wonderful time of the year - time to go back to school! This week on The Medieval Podcast, Danièle takes a quick look at medieval education. Get the show notes at http://www.medievalists.net/2019/09/e...
The Medieval University
During the early Middle Ages, any type of higher education was usually available only in monasteries and cathedral schools, where Christian monks and nuns taught each other and preserved the writings of classical authors. But by the eleventh-century, medieval Europe was becoming more urban and complex, and royal governments needed highly trained men to run their bureaucracies. Students and teachers were also demanding better ways to be educated, and the solution to this came about with the creation of universities. Universities come from the Latin word universitas, which means...
The Medieval University (In Our Time)
Melvyn Bragg and his guests discuss the medieval universities.In the 11th and 12th centuries a new type of institution started to appear in the major cities of Europe. The first universities were those of Bologna and Paris; within a hundred years similar educational organisations were springing up all over the continent. The first universities based their studies on the liberal arts curriculum, a mix of seven separate disciplines derived from the educational theories of Ancient Greece. The universities provided training for those intending to embark on careers in the Church, the law and education. They provided a new focus for intellectual life in Europe, and exerted a significant influence on society around them. And the university model proved so robust that many of these institutions and their medieval innovations still exist today.
