A Brief History of Time Travel
Historians are our original time travelers. Their time machines propel them into the past. Yet they also live in the present. Which raises the question: “What is Time?”  Engage in some of your own time travelling and experience the many paradoxes of time as the essence of our humanity and site of some of our most persistent fantasies, legends and myths.
