Shelves: history, science
A wonderful explanation and history of science from antiquity to Galileo. It gives a wonderful overview of all advances and gives his context for all of the improvements. Excellent overview of scientific and technological history.

A brilliant survey

More specialized is
http://www.amazon.com/Grosseteste-ori...

Which deals with the origins and history of induction. Both books are important.
AskHistorians
One of the definitive works on the history of medieval science, originally published in 1952. Strong focus on scientific ideas, with comparatively less attention to social context.
