6-9 Carlton House Terrace
London, England

Speaker: Professor Michael Hunter, Birkbeck

"Within a few years of its foundation, the Royal Society acquired a crucial institutional role in organising and arbitrating scientific research. Yet what has often been overlooked is the element of evolution - even of trial and error - in the Society's development in its earliest years. This talk will explore the sometimes painful process by which the Society's founders discovered what functions this novel body could most usefully serve."

This lecture is free to attend, though as space is limited one must reserve a seat.
