A new Insight entitled ‘Water-borne’ debuts this week featuring a guest speaker from Wellcome Collection, Will Giller, who is plunging into the often murky waters of London’s famous River Thames. Take a dip into the history of the benefits and hazards it has posed to local inhabitants in this richly illustrated talk.
The talk takes place on Thursday 10th May 3-4pm. Places are limited, free tickets can collected from the Information Desk after 1.30pm on the day.
Our popular Insight sessions offer visitors to the Wellcome Library an opportunity to explore the variety of our holdings. These free sessions are thematic in style, last around an hour and offer a chance to learn about our collections.
