Telescopes: From early Infants to Modern Giants

Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens,

Saturday 13 April, 2pm – 4pm

These two talks by Prof. Andrew Beeby and Prof. Paula Chadwick from Durham University will reveal the importance of light imaging technology in the analysis of pigments in illuminated manuscripts and the evolution of modern day telescopes.

These talks are inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s fascination with light and optics and are supported by the Friends of Sunderland Museum and the Institute of Physics.
