The 2020 James Sutherland History lecture describes the early stages of the engineering profession.

The annual James Sutherland History Lecture covers historical topics related to structural engineering. The 2020 lecture was given by Steven Brindle, Senior Properties Historian for the new English Heritage Trust.

Steven guides us through the early stages of the engineering profession. The talk demonstrates how engineers managed to define themselves as profession, carving out a professional territory that was defined, in large part, as things that architects couldn't do, and how engineers were the pre-eminent figure in the industrial revolution.
