This lecture about the Origins of the Royal Society (sponsored by the Institute of Physics) was given on Thursday 6th September 2001 at the Pickaquoy Cinema as part of the Orkney Science Festival.

It covers Robert's latest research on the role of Freemason Sir Robert Moray in the creation of what is probably the most important scientific society in the world, the Royal Society of London.

Robert is currently finishing off a book covering the material, in detail, to be published by Headline early next year.
