The Fellowship: the story of a revolution
The Royal Society is holding a public lecture by John Gribbin titled ‘The Roots of the Royal, and the Scottish Connection’ on Tuesday 4 October 2005 at 6.30pm
How did a group of scientists get to establish a Royal Society? The author of The Fellowship, a new history of the scientific revolution and the origin of the Royal Society, will argue that it was largely thanks to Robert Moray, a Scot who managed to serve on both sides in the Civil War, he was the man with the Big Idea and the contacts to make it real.
Admission is free – no ticket or advance booking required.
Doors open at 5.45pm
