The inventor James Watt will be one of the topics under discussion at “Celebrating Scotland’s Industrial Heritage” – a one-day conference at the Engine Shed in Stirling.

Speakers from across the heritage sector will talk about how they became involved with industrial heritage, why it is so important to Scotland, the extent of its global reach, and why it is such a crucial part of our future.

The programme includes industrial historians and engineers, and speakers from our industrial museums, business archives, universities, the National Trust for Scotland, and from Historic Environment Scotland.
