Abstract

I will give a historical overview of some of the theorems proved by the
Ancient Greeks, which are now taken for granted but were, and are,
landmarks in the history of mathematics. Particular attention will be
given to the calculation of areas, including theorems of Hippocrates,
Euclid and Archimedes.
