Boom and bust in Bronze Age Britain: major copper ...

2019-10-15  Bronze Age copper mining in Britain. The Ross Island mine in south-west Ireland provided Britain with most of its earliest copper supply. Opening c. 2400 BC, the mine is associated with Beaker pottery, which suggests a link with the migration from continental Europe of people who spread the Beaker culture and introduced metallurgical knowledge (O'Brien Reference O'Brien 2004).

Iron mining Industrial History of Cumbria

A shortened version of the chapter by Richard Hewer and Alen McFadzean in Lakeland’s Mining Heritage. The iron industry has slowly matured within the Lake Counties for centuries, with industrial growth spreading from the small bloomery and forge sites, coastal plateau workings and the narrow veins of the fells to the huge mining and iron smelting complexes of the late 19th and 20th centuries.

Romans in Britain - Roman Mining

Britain was indeed abundant in metal ore, one of the main consumables in the Roman Empire. It was not just iron and lead the Romans wanted to mine, there was also gold, copper and tin. Lead was the actually main prize, as it could be used for water pipes, guttering and, once liquefied in a

History of lead mining Minerals and mines

The 19th century was a period which saw Cornish mining technology used to deepen some of the mines in search of richer ore deposits. However, as the lead veins narrow with depth, this proved unsuccessful, and attention was switched to resmelting the lead-rich waste slag and slimes left over from previous medieval mining.
