1667 and The Royal Society: A Manifesto for the Future

 
  6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

When Thomas Sprat’s The History of the Royal-Society of London appeared in 1667, it was less a history than a manifesto for the future, designed to convince Charles II that experimental research was a worthwhile investment. 

Focussing on experiment and travel, this lecture describes the aims and activities of the early Royal Society almost two centuries before the word ‘scientist’ was invented. As Sprat made clear, science, imperialism and finance were inextricably linked.

No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture 

Cost: Free of Charge
