Welcome to our new SHNH – Society for the History of Natural History website

We are delighted to launch our new website.  Here you will find information about the Society, our activities, publications and how to join us.

You will also find news and up-to-date information as well as links to useful resources and further information.

We hope you like the fresh new look and the improved navigation that will allow you to find the information you need more quickly and easily. It now works beautifully on all devices from your mobile to ipad to computer and TV screen.

Our SHNH Facebook Page and @SHNHSocNatHist Twitter feeds have been integrated so you can keep up to date on news and updates. The webpages have been enabled for social media and you can now email pages and links directly from any page. We now also have a blog post – check out the first blog from our publishers Edinburgh University Press.

There are a few more tweaks and refinements to do including new Flikr pages which will be coming shortly, so don’t be surprised if you see some updates.

It has been a great project to work on and special thanks go to Adam Maltpress of Maltpress and Mario Prelorentsos of JDJ Creative who have designed and built the site and to the Horniman Museum for some beautiful images from their Bioblitz day.

I’d be really keen to hear what you think. If you want to get in touch and share your thoughts, please do email me at Elaine Shaughnessy

In the meantime, happy browsing, and I hope you enjoy using the new site.

It now works beautifully on all devices, from the tiniest mobile to the biggest TV screen. – See more at:
