MINING IN A MEDIEVAL LANDSCAPE:

The Royal Silver Mines of the Tamar Valley

  
By Stephen Rippon et. al.

  

(Softback) (Second hand copy in 'as new' condition)

  

This book explores an industry that was of profound importance both in terms of the local economy and the history of mining nationally, but is long forgotten: the late medieval royal silver mines at Bere Ferrers in the Tamar Valley.
   
The Bere Ferrers silver mines employed up to 400 men, mining on a scale and at depths not previously possible, and changed forever the way that mining was carried out in medieval Britain.​​​​​​​

  

Published by the University of Exeter Press. 2009. Softback. 207 pages. Black and white photographs throughout. 'As new' condition.
