What can I do at PRONI?
The Antrim Coast in the Age of Industry, 1750 to 1890
Lunchtime Lecture Series
28th April to 2nd June 2015 starting at 1pm
PRONI will be delivering a series of lunchtime lectures in April, May and June 2015 examining the arrival of Victorian technology and industrial activity in the Antrim coast and Glens. Until the 1800s much of the Antrim coast and Glens was wild and hard to access. During the nineteenth century the landscape was opened up and efforts were made to bring about an industrial revolution, like that of Belfast, in the country villages and peat-bogs.
