A history of poison is the history of humanity. This class will look at how poison has been used to both kill and save people. We will look at poison in art and literature and real life. The class will explore famous poisoners, their victims, and how one famous poisoner from thousands of years ago still has an impact on us today. Join us as we move through time and poisons!
