Prof Paul Turnbull (History)

The history of human societies has very much been the history of our uses of energy. In this lecture, Professor Paul Turnbull will discuss some of the most important changes in the sources of energy that we have exploited over the past 14,000 years. He will also explain how, at various times in world history, our use of new energy sources has led to profound social and economic changes.
