Albert Harvey – Tudor Alchemist
When Mr. Albert Harvey, the Tudor Alchemist, isn’t slaving over a hot athanor in his laboratory, distilling or calcining various substances, he enjoys nothing better than playing various medieval traditional games.
Originally from Ramsgate, on the Isle of Thanet in Kent, Albert Harvey moved to Canterbury at age 7 when he became apprenticed to an apothecary. In his early twenties, having set up his own apothecary shop in Canterbury, Albert became interested in the Art and Science of Alchemy. As well as supplying pigments to artists, as an alchemist Albert has developed the work of the great Paracelsus and, in his middle years, has even perfected the Art of Transmutation. Or at least he says he has.
