Synopsis

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.

Stephen Rippon is Professor of Landscape Archaeology at the University of Exeter. Peter Claughton is Conservation Officer of the National Association of Mining History Organizations and an active member of the international industrial heritage committee. Chris Smart was responsible for field survey and historic landscape analysis on the Berre Ferres project and discovered and directed excavations at the Roman fort at Calstock; he is a Project Archaeologist with Exeter Archaeology.
