Creature Feature - The Science of Monsters!
Event Details

For thousands of years, people have shared stories about mythical creatures such as vampires, werewolves, chimeras and dragons. But is there any scientific basis for these iconic monsters? In this event, Dr Declan McKenna explains how real-life diseases, natural phenomena and medical practices throughout history have helped contribute to the mythology around these fantastic beasts. And in our modern world of genetic knowledge and scientific experimentation, some of them may be more real than you think!
