The British Royal Society archives are one of the very best places to peer into the development of modern science. Last week, the organization's History of Science Centre launched a new blog dedicated to showing off treasures from the collection. There's not much up yet, so just a quick pointer: watch that space.

This blog will feature posts from the librarians, archivists and curators who run the Centre, and from a handful of our researchers and other supporters too. We intend to show you all kinds of treasures from our collections, provide some insights into how we do things, and hopefully tell you a few things you didn't already know.
