About

Born in Dundee in 1802, Dr Thomas Alexander Wise worked in India as a physician and surgeon. A true polymath, Dr Wise collected everything from Egyptian amulets to Irish copper axes, and wrote treatise on subjects as varied as the Hindu system of medicine, Buddhist imagery on Pictish stones, diseases of the eye and the preservation of ice. Dr Wise also collected a spectacular set of maps of Tibet. Thanks to a loan from the British Library, this exhibition reunites the maps and objects. Join Dr Wise on a journey to the places he travelled and those he only visited in his imagination.
