The Nature of Evidence: How well do 'facts' travel?

This research program explored the nature of evidence by analysing how well facts travelled between and within disciplines and across time. Over the four years of the project, the team investigated facts travelling in a variety of contexts from archaeology to nanotechnology, tracing them from rat experiments to the design of college dormitories, and over time periods that ranged from plague myths to modern epidemiology.
