Description

In 1675 Denis Papin (1647-1712) went to London where he worked with Robert Boyle (1627-1691) and invented the forerunner to the presure cooker, the 'steam digester', which was used to soften bones. He also made a working model of an atmospheric condensing steam engine which was later developed by both Thomas Newcomen (1663-1729) and James Watt (1736-1819).
