Speakers: Professor Ted Parker, School of Engineering & DA, University of Kent

This talk (Professor Ted Parker) traces the progress of domestic clockmaking in this country , from the late 16th to the 19th centuries – a period, where for much of the time, the skills of the craftsmen involved, particularly those in London, and the quality of their work, were second to none. It is illustrated with numerous slides. Although it refers fairly briefly to characters such as Robert Hooke and Thos. Tompion, it focuses more on aspects of design and decoration than on scientific matters.
