Synopsis:

Seventeenth century England was a land ruled by supposition, superstition and magic - but thanks to the founding of the Royal Society, a revolution was about to begin which would change the face of the world forever. John Gribbin explores the lives of Gilbert, Bacon and Harvey, whose beliefs have shaped much of modern science.
