The scientific achievements of James Clerk Maxwell

In this section we are assembling some pages which describe specific aspects of Maxwell’s work.  We have a short video describing his Dynamical Top, a description of the making of the world's first colour photographic image, and examples of his childhood collaboration with his cousin Jemima Wedderburn to produce early animated images, and subsequent use of similar techniques to demonstrate scientific theory.
