Linnaeus In Lapland 3

In the summer of 1732, the Swedish botanist and physician Carl Linnaeus journeyed through Lapland. His travel account is not only often cited as the earliest first-hand account of Lapland by a naturalist and ethnographer, but also known as a founding piece of Swedish literature. With its lively first-person narrative, keen eye for empirical detail and animated portrayal of rural and nomadic life, it gives the impression of entering a new world. But Linnaeus was far from being the first to report on Lapland. Nor was he alone during his trip. In this three part podcast series we learn about this journey through Lapland the discoveries made and the people that Linnaeus met along the way. All of the objects discussed are currently on display in the Library at The Linnean Society until the end of April 2020

Importance Of Historical Collections

F. Edwards, A Whaler's Lesson Learnt In Time

In the late 1800s, Frank Edwards, a Victorian gentlemen, found himself shanghaied aboard the whaling ship the Abram Barker. Frank kept a daily diary of his year out at sea, in which he gives a detailed account of the ship’s activities and his own personal struggles. Given to us by his descendants, the diary is now in the safe keeping of The Linnean Society of London’s collections. This podcast outlines the historical views held about whales as ‘monsters’ and as a valuable Victorian commodity. It also delves into the worrying impact whaling has had on global whale populations, lingering even today, and what the uncertain future holds for these giant creatures of the sea. Co-produced and directed by: Ross Ziegelmeier and Leonie Berwick Voice actor (Frank Edwards): William Ewart Speakers: Ruth Edwards and Mark Peter Simmonds OBE Choir: Owl Parliament
