Cast your mind back to the first decade of the 16th Century. What is happening? Leonardo da Vinci is painting the Mona Lisa and Michelangelo chips away at his sculpture of David while, in Rome, a lunar eclipse is observed by Copernicus. On the southern Atlantic Ocean a Portuguese explorer, João da Nova, discovers the island of St Helena – the place where Napoleon will be exiled over two hundred years later.

Now visit the years between 1895 and 1900 and here find Bram Stoker busy writing Dracula while blood-thinning Aspirin is being invented. X-rays are discovered, The Importance of Being Ernest by Oscar Wilde is first performed and Cézanne realizes the possibilities of modern art in his painting, The Bathers.
