Alchemy in Medieval and Tudor England

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Alchemy – a subject of much speculation and a lot of confusion. Is it all about turning lead into gold, or is it more than that?

This book guides you through the arrival and growth of alchemy in England in the medieval and Tudor periods.

On the way we meet famous people like Roger Bacon and John Dee; ordinary scoundrels and of course Kings and a Queen. The actual purposes of the alchemists, who were not just interested in gold and silver, are explained, and some of their practical works made clear.

Read on for an introduction to the past that you won’t forget!
