Support new work on Early Engines

A crucial aim of the International Early Engines Conference is to provide a platform for the significant amount of research into the early development of heat engines which powered us into the modern industrial era. Les Turnbull’s new work on William Brown is a perfect example of this rich seam of new material.

Les will be presenting aspects of his research in a lecture at Neville Hall Newcastle at 11am, on Wednesday 2nd March 2016:

Lecture by Les Turnbull at the North of England Institution of Mining and Mechanical Engineers, supported by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers North Eastern Region

The North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers intends to publish the results of Les Turnbull’s research into the life, work and impact of  William Brown (d.1782) a largely forgotten but eminent mining engineer in the Great Northern Coalfield, and are inviting subscribers – the original crowdfunding model – to support this important work
