Description Edit | History

Isambard Kingdom Brunel, FRS (April 9, 1806 - September 15, 1859) was a leading British civil engineer who is famous for designing bridges and dockyards and the first major British railway. He also assisted in the building of the first tunnel under a navigable river and the SS Great Britain, the first propeller-driven ocean-going iron ship which was at the time the largest ship ever built. He is credited with turning the town of Swindon into one of the largest growing towns in Europe during the 19th century.

In 2002, he placed second in a BBC public poll to determine the "100 Greatest Britons" behind only Winston Churchill.
