'The first comprehensive, authoritative, popularly written, multicultural history of science, Lost Discoveries fills a crucial gap. Dick Teresi's innovative history of science explores the unheralded scientific breakthroughs from peoples of the ancient world -- Babylonians, Egyptians, Indians, Africans, New World and Oceanic tribes, among others -- and the non-European medieval world. They left an enormous heritage in the fields of mathematics, astronomy, cosmology, physics, geology, chemistry, and technology.'--from the publisher.
