- Revolutionary Engineers

by Lucinda Hawksley

Monday 18th October 2021

Many of you will know about Isambard Kingdom Brunel, but how much do you know about his father, the French engineer Marc Brunel? This father-and-son duo changed the world in which they lived, and their brilliant ideas still affect our lives today. This is a tale of revolution and invention, of grand successes and spectacular failures, and of two extraordinary men whose works span continents and whose creations have become a lasting legacy.


Lucinda Hawksley is well known to us as  an entertaining and very knowledgeable speaker.  She's a prolific writer, researcher and broadcaster.
