Discover the folklore and history of our most malignant, toxic plants.

If you drink much from a bottle marked poison , it is almost certain to disagree with you, sooner or later. Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Poisonings are among the most memorable deaths in history, from the Roman Empire to the Medieval era and beyond. Concealed and deliberate, it s a crime that must be planned in advance. And yet there is a fine line between healing and poisoning Paracelsus argued that only the dosage matters!
