The Big Stuff 2015 large technology heritage conference was held at the Centre Historique Minier in Lewarde, France. This is in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France which is full of amazing industrial heritage – coal mines, textile mills, lace works etc. The conference was timed to coincide with the TICCIH 2015 industrial heritage conference in Liile in the same area, so it was a feast of all things French and industrial for the better part of two weeks.
See below for the papers presented at Big Stuff 2015.
