Open/Close Menu A website, archive and interactive space celebrating one of Britain's most innovative engineers and inventors, Frederick Lanchester

The Lanchester Interactive Archive celebrates one of Britain’s greatest engineers and inventors, Frederick William Lanchester (1868 – 1946).

Lanchester is perhaps best known for designing and building the first all-British motor car (in 1895) but he also published papers and books detailing the first scientific principles of flight, colour photography before it was reality, and devised military strategies that underpin business management courses still taught today.
