The histories of science, technology, environment and medicine are dynamic fields of historical enquiry which have inspired new and exciting questions and historical approaches.

Our work spans periods from Medieval to Modern and encompasses a variety of places including Britain and Europe, Asia, the Americas, Africa and the Caribbean.
