Genius!

Intellect in the Bath area has always been high. On 31st December 1780 Edmund Rack commented, "this institution promises much rational improvement and instruction; and has a much more favourable beginning than the Royal Society in London had 100 years ago - there being only 5 members for more than two years: and those 5 not superior in learning and genius to most of our members". 11 Members went on to become Fellows of the Royal Society!

Curatorial Curiosities

Wax impression from the mediaeval seal of Glastonbury Abbey

Founded in the 7th Century, Glastonbury Abbey became one of the wealthiest and most powerful in the land by the mid-late mediaeval period. An “Engraving of a seal of the Abbey of Glaston” in the British Museum’s collection, identical to this wax impression, is dated 1536. This seal may have been in use for much longer.
