14 April

Cornish Science: Steam, Mines, and The Heat of The Earth

Discover the story of Falmouths natural philosopher Robert Were Fox, a key figure in this scientific activity. Fox used Cornwall's mines to measure the Earth's great subterranean heat, leading him to develop radical new theories on the planet's formation and internal structure.

Join cultural historian Dr. Edward Gillin, a specialist in British science, technology, architecture, and politics in the nineteenth century, as he shares fascinating insights into this era.

This talk is brought to you by the Tanner Phoenix Trust, in partnership with the Cornwall Community Fund.

All are welcome to attend.
