Overview

Dr Felicity Henderson, King's College London

The Royal Society began with a group of men who were interested in natural phenomena and wanted to understand how their world worked - but they were not trained scientists. This talk will explore some of the lesser known aspects of their research programme, featuring carts with legs, monstrous births, and showers of fish from the heavens.
