From Dark Satanic Mills by Kersten Hall
Price: £2 (Free for members)
‘From Dark Satanic Mills to DNA’ tells the story of the men and women who, whilst working in Leeds played a crucial role in one of the biggest milestones in science – our understanding of DNA.
Thanks to a legendary performance by Sir Ian Botham in 1981 and, more recently, a nail-biting final over in the 3rd Test of the 2019 Ashes, Headingley is famous for sporting heroes. But it has also been the home of scientific heroes too. ‘From Dark Satanic Mills to DNA’ tells the story of the men and women who, whilst working in Leeds played a crucial role in one of the biggest milestones in science – our understanding of DNA, the genetic material – and in so doing, earned the city two Nobel prizes.

The Society makes grants both to individuals and to organisations in support of cultural and scientific activities which increase innovation, outreach and diversity in Leeds and its immediate area. It also supports local museums and galleries and publications relating to the city.
Since 1819, the Phil & Lit has been inviting the people of Leeds to hear from knowledgeable and entertaining speakers. Many are leaders in their field of science, arts or current affairs. We also hold an annual Science Fair and organise occasional visits. Becoming a member means that you’ll receive invitations to all these activities. In future, we plan to have a mix of real and virtual events.
