In 1663, Martin Lister left his parents’ house in Lincolnshire to study medicine in Montpellier. Whilst in France, he kept a journal in an almanac entitled Every Man’s Companion: Or, An useful Pocket-Book. The diary demonstrates the intellectual development of a significant 17th-c physician and naturalist, and is a vivid, firsthand account of medical education and natural philosophy in the 1660s. Lister’s grand tour and memoirs have been recreated as an interactive website, authored by Dr Anna Marie Roos (University of Lincoln) and funded by the British Academy.
