This chapter offers a survey of several sites for science in London, England. The analysis reveals how different scientific sites operated different moral and epistemic economies like the privileged venues patronized by figures like Joseph Banks and those occupied by the British Association for the Advancement of Science. These sites were not simply physical locations, but symbolic urban places whose occupants were aligned for or against aristocratic privilege, radical reform, or scientific naturalism.

Keywords:   science, London, England, scientific sites, moral economies, epistemic economies, Joseph Banks, British Association for the Advancement of Science, aristocratic privilege, scientific naturalism
