This video, introduced by Museum botanist Sandy Knapp, explains how the Museum is indebted to many people that have contributed to our historical collections. A lot of contributors have gone unrecorded, but their legacies have helped the development of science. Find out how the work of enslaved people has given an insight into the use of plants in everyday life, as food, medicines and poisons.

This video is one of a series about the lives of some of the most influential naturalists in the Museum’s history.
