Maxwell presented his work “A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field” to a bemused audience at The Royal Society in December 1864.  He had unified current theories of magnetism, electricity and light into a set of equations which depicted a rigorous theory of electromagnetism.  The work provided a basis for the revolution in communications which underpins our modern world.  It also furnished twentieth century physicists like Einstein and Planck with the mathematical tools needed to expand our broader understanding of reality.
