    From Stone Age flint mining to the coal miners' strike of 1984-5, Anthony Burton traces the long history of mining and the working conditions of miners in Britain. The emphasis is on the development of the coal mining industry and unions, but the book also covers mining for other minerals and topics such as the impact of steam power on mining, the first unions, women and children in the mines and the industry during the two world wars.
