Further Information:
While the coal and iron industries have been well documented in Wales, the copper business has had less exposure. J. Richard Williams has put together in this readable book the story of the industry from the earliest times, through to the Industrial Revolution and after. He tells of the largest enterprises like Parys Mountain on Anglesey, of the era when Swansea was known as ‘Copperopolis’, and of many small mines elsewhere in Wales, and we get to know the characters involved, be they rich owners, struggling businessmen, or the men, women and children who worked in the mines.

The book is illustrated with photographs and maps, and there is a geological introduction by John S. Mason, BSc, MPhil.
