An exhibition on the history of the Royal Society was held in 2010 to celebrate our 350th anniversary.
The exhibition showcased many of the archives, books, portraits and artefacts in the Society's collection. These pages feature some of the scientific instruments and other artefacts that were displayed.
The exhibition catalogue contains images and descriptions of most of the artefacts in the exhibition.
