Only a few civilisations throughout the world have contributed significantly to the written records of astronomical phenomena from the historical past. Pre-eminent among these must be Europe, China (together with Korea and Japan), Babylon and the Arab World. A wealth of pre-telescopic data from these sources is readily accessible, and it is in this that searches for historical supernova sightings have been concentrated. 
Astrometry of the 1572 supernova (B Cassiopeiae)
Contemporary European measurements of the Milky Way supernova of 1572 (B Cas) have been analyzed to compute a modern position for the star in 1572. This work adds to that done by previous

Owing to the rapid progress of space sciences and the high-energy astrophysics in the past 2–3 decades, historical supernova records have made important contributions to modern astrophysics and will
A new look at the birthrate of supernova remnan
We have reanalysed a homogeneous catalogue of shell-type supernova remnants and we find that the radio data are consistent with a birthrate of one in 22±3 yr. Our approach is based on the secular
Historical Supernovae and Supernova Remnants
The oldest historical supernova (SN), recorded by ancient Chinese in 14th Century B.C. on pieces of tortoise shells or bones, is identified with the aid of modern space 7-ray observations. Hard
Supernova Remnants I: Historical Events
Historical supernovae occupy a special place in the study of supernova remnants, being the only ones whose age can be definitely ascertained and for which anything can be said about the nature of the
A Near-Eastern sighting of the supernova explosion of 1054
ASTRONOMERS have long been puzzled by the apparent failure of observers in Europe and the Near East to see and report the Crab supernova of 1054. However, we now present evidence of such a sighting.
Identification of the guest star of AD 185 as a comet rather than a supernova
VERY few nearby supernovae have been bright enough to see with the naked eye. The only such case this century was supernova 1987A. Matching historical records of such events with presently observable
The Impact of Historical Chinese Astronomical Records
The impact of Chinese historical astronomical records is important in the study of astronomy today. In particular, the impact of the Chinese records related to historical supernovae have made
