New NAMHO research

The National Association of Mining History Organisations (NAMHO) has published a document titled The Archaeology of Mining and Quarrying in England, A Research Framework – which members may find very interesting.

It is described by NAMHO as follows: “This presents the results of an in-depth assessment of available historical and archaeological resources for all minerals, from copper through to building stone, drawing primarily on expertise within the voluntary sector. It provides background information on the geology, applied technology and the historic impact on infrastructure such as transport and settlement.”
