Exhibition celebrates life of Sir Thomas Browne

He was a witness at a witch trial, and kept an ostrich as a pet. 

Sir Thomas Browne is considered the greatest British genius, that most people have never heard of. 

There are some hoping to change that. 

His collections, from animal specimens, to notebooks and even a cast of his own skull have gone on show, to help paint a picture of the London born polymath. 

Dr Harriet Phillips from Queen Mary University of London has curated the exhibition.
