Tin mining has existed in Cornwall and parts of Devon from before the Romans arrived in Britain, this volume which is Anthony Burton's one hundredth book, marks a milestone in the authors writing career.

The book takes the story of Tin mining from its earliest period through to the present day, looking at how the industry developed from basic primitive pick and shovel operation, to the later use of explosives and steam to extract the valuable ore.

The book also looks at the politics, economics and technology available at different periods of the history of the tin mining industry.

The volume has many new illustrations and has been thoroughly researched, to produce a new insight into this interesting old industry.
