The Stephenson Fact File - 2nd (E-publishing) Edition (Page 1 of 8)
The updated 2nd Edition* of the popular Stephenson Fact File is available on line. With this series of web pages the SLS seeks to honour the memory of two of the greatest engineers that Britain has ever produced and further promote appreciation of George and Robert Stephenson and their great achievements.
Containing a summary of family history, a Stephenson family tree, listings of notable railway & civil engineering works, heritage sites related to the Stephensons, illustrations and a bibliography the document set provides students of all ages with an overview of the most important aspects of their lives and achievements. The facts given offer a starting point for more detailed study and research rather than comprehensive insight into any single aspect of their lives.
