Richmond Literature Festival


Whittaker Ave, Richmond,


From Stone Age to space age, people have looked up at the stars and been inspired by their beauty, their patterns, and their majesty. Beneath the Night is a history of humanity, told through our relationship with the night sky.

From prehistoric cave art and Ancient Egyptian zodiacs, to the modern era of satellites and space exploration, author Stuart Clark explores a fascination shared across the world and throughout millennia. It is one that has shaped our scientific understanding; helped us navigate the terrestrial world; provided inspiration for our poets, artists and philosophers; and it has given us a place to project our hopes and fears. This is the awe-inspiring story of the universe, and our place within it.
Dr Stuart Clark is an astronomer and award-winning science writer for the Guardian, New Scientist, BBC Focus, and many other publications.
