The orchard at Woolsthorpe Manor may be small, but it is one of the world’s most stunning scientific heritage sites. The famous story of Isaac Newton under the apple tree has come to hold the power of ancient legend.

But this unassuming farmhouse in the Lincolnshire countryside is also Newton’s childhood home, and the place he returned to as a young student to escape the plague at Cambridge. His early experiments here showed how ordinary sunlight contains all the colours of the rainbow. In this guidebook, historian of science, Patricia Fara, explores the story of Isaac Newton; his life, science and birthplace. The place that inspired him, and that continues to inspire future generations of scientists today.

Dr Patricia Fara has a degree in physics and is a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge. A leading historian of science, she regularly gives lectures as well as TV and radio interviews about the eighteenth century. Her books include Newton: The Making of Genius (2002), the prize-winning Science: A Four Thousand Year History (2009), and A Lab of One’s Own: Science and Suffrage in World War one (2018).

In partnership with:

The British Society for the History of Science (BSHS) promotes interest in science’s history and supports research all over the world. In addition to its academic journal and regular conferences, the BSHS organises stimulating events for people of all ages and backgrounds. Patricia Fara was president until 2018, when this book was published.
