The lecture will be followed by a reception providing a good opportunity for people to mingle, meet the speakers and Society staff and Fellows, and to see some of the V&A Dundee.
The lecture will be given by Dr Tacye Phillipson (National Museums Scotland) and Dr John C. Taylor OBE (horologist and inventor), and delivered in conjunction with the V&A Dundee.
Dr Taylor uncovers the innovation of Scottish watchmaker, David Ramsay (c1585-1660), Chief Clockmaker to King James I and first master of the Worshipful Clockmakers Company London (1632).
Dr Phillipson will provide an overview of the variety and development of clockwork during the 17th century.
