With apologies for cross-posting, colleagues may be interested in this
aspect of Hist. Arch:
The National Association of Mining History Organisations (NAMHO) has begun a
project, part funded by English Heritage over the next two years, to develop
a Research Framework for the Archaeology of the Extractive Industries
(Mining and Quarrying). As part of the first stage of that project NAMHO
will be holding a series of seminar/workshops across England; the first of
which will be held at the Tamar Valley Centre, in Gunnislake, on 20
February. The purpose of the seminar is to discuss the current state of
knowledge for mining and quarrying archaeology in the South West of England.
There will be three presentations on aspects of the archaeology over the
course of the day with ample time for discussion and contributions from the
floor. Would those interested in attending please contact the Project
Director - Dr Peter Claughton - by e-mail [log in to unmask] or by
'phone 01437 532578.
