(p.567) History of Science and Medicine
A Century of British Medieval Studies

J. D. North

British Academy

This chapter examines the progress of British study on the history of medieval science and medicine during the twentieth century. It explains that the history of science has been moderately well represented within the universities of the western world for rather more than a century, and has enjoyed a secure place in British universities for about half of that time. It describes major British publications on these subjects and discusses international precedents, the role of the University College London and the historical instruments and alchemy.

Keywords:   medieval science, medieval medicine, Great Britain, University College London, historical instruments, alchemy
