Kate Round

I am an outreach presenter and tour guide for Dudley Museum Service In my previous life, I was a research chemist and lecturer so understand the chemistry of glass having worked on the synthesis of ‘zeolites’ (silica based materials) with my work published in International Journals. I have always lived in the Black Country and have a strong industrial family background.

My areas of interest include the historical development of the industry in the Stourbridge district, how the geology and geography impacted on the wealth and sociology of the area, driven by the rivalry of our Glass Dynasties. I research, write, and present talks on all aspects of our Glass Heritage
