Along the way we examine the role of copper in cannon production, Emperor Charles V's debts, the Spanish Armada's battle with England, the history of glassmaking, mirrors, the sextant used for navigation and map making, the theories of Charles Darwin, and the founder of eugenics, Francis Galton, upon which Hitler based his political theories.
