Marconi’s early radio equipment

The History of Science Museum in Oxford houses a unique collection of early radio and broadcasting equipment developed by Guglielmo Marconi.

On this page, through a series of weekly postings beginning on May 27th 2021, we shall be exploring some of these objects in detail. We shall examine what they do, how they were made, why they are important in the context of radio and communications history, and — crucially — where you can find them during your visit to the History of Science Museum!
