In this talk I shall cover the entire history of European mathematics in around 50 minutes – illustrating my talk with around 200 informative (and sometimes amusing) postage stamps from around the world featuring mathematics and mathematicians. This talk is aimed at an interested general audience and assumes no mathematical knowledge.
