About this book

Throughout history, momentous, enabling discoveries have led to a giant leap in our understanding of the workings of the universe and fast-tracked human progress. 100 Discoveries presents in chronological order the greatest 100 breakthroughs in science and technology, medicine, and the major areas of human endeavour of the past 10,000 years, from the development of agriculture in 10,000BC to the discovery of genomics and the unravelling and manipulation of genes in living things. In identifying and describing these discoveries, this book tells the stories of the amazing people behind them, and where appropriate breaks down the complex concepts under discussion in easy-to-understand terms.
