A glimpse into the workings of Cornish Mining Companies- A talk for November

Hope, Luck and a Sprinkling of Underhand Dealings

A talk for the East Cornwall Mining History Association at Luckett

A brief pause in the posts this week to promote my talk for the ECMHA at Luckett village, a village rich in miming history and heritage. 

Luckett Talk Poster

On the 24th of November 2018  I will be giving a talk   on the dealings that went on behind the scenes of 18th Century Cornish mines. An evening that will bring to life many of the words and phrases that fill the pages of newspapers and mine reports of the day, and a talk that will throw some light of what was called the “Cornish System” .  Some come along and enjoy an evening of Tributes and Tuts, Wheals and Winzes.  This is local history with great a plot line!

The Talk

Some of the talk will be based on my latest publication  “On the Economy of the Mines of Cornwall and Devon 1814 (Annotated): The Cornish System described” , some of it on my other publications, some of it on publications to come, and some of it on the research behind the posts on this blog.
