Mining in a Medieval Landscape
The Royal Silver Mines of the Tamar Valley
Distributed for University of Exeter Press
Mining in a Medieval Landscape explores the history and archaeology of the late medieval royal silver mines at Bere Ferrers in Devon’s Tamar Valley and examines their significance for mining history as a whole. Comparing their impact on the landscape with that of less intensive, traditional mining industries, this authoritative volume analyzes maps and documents together in light of recent archaeological field surveys, allowing the mining landscape to be reconstructed in remarkable detail.
