Summary
A series presenting science as a detective story illustrating the connections between events of the past and inventions of the future. Part 3: Examines the connection between medieval advances in the science of warfare and the discovery of silver deposits in Czechoslovakia. Europe turned its attention to making money to wage wars as scientists like Galileo began to investigate vacuums, air pressure, and other natural laws which led to the invention of modern telecommunications. Part 4: The transition from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance was influenced by the rise of commercialism, a sudden change in climate, famine and the Black Death, which set the stage for the invention of the printing press. Also examines how the invention of the water mill, carillon, and the jacquard loom led to social and economic change
