Star Clusters in the Magellanic Clouds

  • G. S. Da Costa (a1)

Abstract

Recent results for the old and intermediate-age star clusters of the Magellanic Clouds are reviewed. Highlights include new evidence that the LMC old clusters are as old the Galaxy's halo globular clusters and the persistence of the LMC cluster “Age Gap” despite field star evidence for significant star formation during the cluster age gap epoch. For the SMC new data confirm the lack of significant change in cluster abundances with age prior to ~4 Gyr ago.
