mirrorshard: (The Book of Rainbows)
[personal profile] mirrorshard
I decided yesterday that I wanted to resume my research into William Gilberd. I think I've written a bit about him here before, but can't be bothered to look back and see. If any of you are interested, I'll expand and enthuse and ramble on the subject, but essentially, he was one of the first people to do Science in England, working on magnetism as applied to the (then very new and controversial) Copernican system, and to navigation at sea.

So now I have a reader's pass for the British Library, which makes me extremely happy.
