Tin Mining

I have just completed a further proofreading project for Pen & Sword Books, on a new (for me) subject. This one is a history of the tin mining industry in Devon and Cornwall. Written by historian Anthony Burton, the manuscript traces the rise and fall of this unique industry and of those who were involved with it. It also looks at how the expertise of the industry was utilised abroad in similar mines, most notably in the Americas, South Africa and Australia. Suitably illustrated, a bibliography at the rear of the manuscript provides a list of further reading.
