The ICE has set up a communities facility on its website and one community of particualr note to our members is the Engineering History & Heritage Community, set up by good friend of Engineering Timelines, Carol Morgan. You'll find it at ... www.ice.org.uk. You may have to sign up to the ICE website but anyone can do this, you don't need to be an ICE member.
