This work 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. It also looks at the politics, economics and technology available at different periods of the history of the tin mining industry.
