The Trailblazing Royal Society

By | From the Collections

Today (30th November) is the start of the Royal Society’s year long celebrations, to mark the 350th anniversary of its founding.

To honour this, an audio slideshow appears on the BBC’s website illustrating a number of seminal moments from the Society’s history. Also launched today is Trailblazing, an interactive timeline tracing the development of the world’s oldest science academy from 1660 to the present day.

Both of these websites include visual content drawn from the collections of the Wellcome Library.

For more on the Society’s 350th anniversary, see the dedicated pages on their website.
