Jim Endersby & Dr. Louis M. Chiappe

Sunday, July 30, 2017 - 9:00pm

Since Ancient Greece, people have been enthralled by orchids. Orchids were believed to have healing or magical properties. The 18 th Century mania for collecting and growing orchids in England supported numerous expeditions to the jungles of the world where hundreds and sometimes thousands of orchids were shipped home to affluent buyers. Darwin even wrote a book about orchids. And that’s just the beginning of the orchid story. Tonight on Inquiry, we welcome JIM ENDERSBY. He is a reader in the history of science at the University of Sussex.
