Thomas Browne was born in London in 1605. He began his education at Winchester College in 1616, where he was introduced to many of the texts that would later form the foundation of his investigations. After Winchester, Browne became a student at Broadgates Hall (now Pembroke College, Oxford), before studying medicine in Montpellier, Padua, and Leiden. On returning to England in 1637 he settled in Norwich, where he practised medicine until his death in 1682.
