Mining in Cornwall and Devon brings together material from a variety of hard-to-find sources on the detailed history of the thousands of mines that operated in Cornwall and Devon from the late 1790s to the present day. It presents information about what and when these mines produced; who owned and managed each mine; and how many men, women, and children each mine employed. Illustrated throughout and accompanied by an interactive CD, Mining in Cornwall and Devon is an eloquent overview of the structure and progress of an industry that became a crucible of innovation during Britain’s industrial revolution.
