Mountains and Orefields: Metal Mining Landscapes in Mid- & North-East Wales


D E Jones, Michael H Frost, and James Walters (2004)


The extraction of natural resources has had a profound effect on the Welsh landscape, and the exploitation of metal ores has been a feature of rural upland landscapes since the Bronze Age. This report breaks new ground by providing a synthesis of information on a range of non-ferrous metal mining sites, and a broad chronological framework from Roman to Victorian times-focusing in most detail on the period of rapid expansion in workings during the 18th and 19th centuries.
