EDSAC

The EDSAC Replica Project aims to reconstruct one of the most important early British digital computers.

Designed in 1947 by a team lead by Maurice Wilkes, the original EDSAC computer operated for almost 10 years, starting from its first successful program run on 6th May 1949, at the Cambridge University Mathematical Laboratory.

Our goal is to have a working reconstruction of EDSAC as it was in May 1949, built and operational by May 2015.

The EDSAC Replica Project is a registered charity and is affiliated to the UK’s Computer Conservation Society.
