Abstract

In the 18th century, as you well remember, Sir Horace Walpole coined the term "serendipity" for accidental discoveries. He had come across a fairy tale of the three princes of Serendip (which was the old name for Sri Lanka). They set off to travel the world and rarely found the treasures they were looking for but, by accident, came across equally happy discoveries.
