Abstract

Star formation in the outermost regions of the LMC, several kpc from the center, has been dormant for some Gyr. With deep HST and wide-field ground-based imaging surveys, sufficient stars can be measured to accurately delineate the critical turn-off and subgiant branch regions of the CMD, and thus provide a picture of the first 10 Gyr of star formation in the LMC.
