Parasites in the British Newspaper Archive!

We’re endlessly fascinated by all the different types of researchers who are busy rummaging around in the Archive.

It’s a grand gallimaufry: from genealogy researchers to, well, leading experts on parasites…in all their various and glorious forms – insect and human.

So when a parasite expert recently got in touch to advise us that that the BNA was a great place to discover information on most type of parasites, we were very enthusiastic to learn more about this excellent research project.
