On the 16th of November 2016 Professor Tom McLeish FRS from Durham University, UK, delivered our 1st Annual Edward Delaval Lecture in Physics. The lecture is named after Edward Delaval FRS, a ‘physics hero’ associated with the Doddington Hall near Lincoln. Tom gave a fascinating talk about the English polymath of the 13th century Robert Grosseteste, who was Bishop of Lincoln. A lively discussion and answers to questions from the public after the lecture made 1.5 hours fly without notice.
