The story of mining in Cornwall

£45.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Making metal from ore dug from the ground is a skill, a passion and a business that is fundamental to the character and identity of Cornwall. Beneath the rolling fields, buried in the cliffs, far below the crashing sea is a hidden world of strength, sorrow, triumph and struggle. Know this world and we know something of Cornwall. In "The Story of Mining in Cornwall", Allen Buckley narrates 4,000 years of mining history with clarity, attention to detail and empathy for generations of Cornish who worked in the industry. It is magnificently illustrated with much rare and original material and written by Allen Buckley, Cornwall's foremost mining historian. Allen Buckley's many years of experience, firstly as a miner and then an academic, make him qualified above all others to undertake such an ambitious work. His book provides the first overview of the industry from the prehistoric to the present, and is narrated with technical understanding, social awareness and foresight into the future of Cornish mining. This book is introduced by Professor Roger Burt of Exeter University.
