Rutherford Appleton Laboratory Didcot
Chilton OX11 0QX
Dr Kathryn Harkup will be presenting “B is for Belladonna” at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.
As a follow up to the popular talk, A is for Arsenic, Kathryn will be taking
another toxic tour of some of Agatha Christie’s poisons. The world’s most
popular crime writer may have been writing fiction, but it wasn’t all
made up. What chemical clues did the Queen of Crime use in her murder
mystery novels? What real life crimes inspired the classic Poirot, Marple
and Tommy and Tuppence stories? We will take a look at the sinister
science of murder and poisoning. Expect tainted teapots, lethal umbrellas
and magnificent moustaches.
