Welcome to NUTS & BOLTERS, our illustrated glossary.

You can explore terms alphabetically by letter, or by theme to see the wider context.

Derived from the text-based glossary assembled in 1996 by Tony Yoward, it is being enhanced with illustrations by John Brandrick. We are grateful to James Wheeler who is editing the glossary, bringing together the text and images, as well as suggesting improvements to the functioning and appearance of the site.

Please feel free to send us any corrections or additions.

This joint project with the Mills Research Group is supported by The Heritage Lottery Fund and Stichting Steunfonds TIMS.
