Big History, Visualisation and the Brain

Christopher Lloyd, author of best-selling world history book What on Earth Happened?, presents his pioneering techniques for communicating the deep chronology of the story of science and history over billions of years to an everyday audience.

During his journey he will discuss and demonstrate a wide range of diverse communication strategies for conveying a long chronological perspective including the lost art of rhetoric and memory from ancient Greece, the use of medieval visual timelines and modern insights into hard-wired evolutionary learning pathways taken from the latest research in neuroscience.
