The Newcomen Society

The Newcomen Society was founded in 1920 and takes its name from Thomas Newcomen, who invented the first practical working steam engine around 1712. We cover all aspects of engineering from ancient times to the present and are looking forward to our centenary.

Since 1920 we have published over a 1000 papers in The Journal, which are an invaluable archive of original research material for historians and available in The Archive, which is free to members, while Non-members are free to browse and purchase. Newcomen Links is the society’s quarterly magazine.

Regular events are held in various locations and include lectures, study days and conferences.
