The Council for British Archaeology was the first organisation to use the term ‘Industrial Archaeology’, over 50 years ago. This new book, the latest in the CBA’s popular Practical Handbook series, celebrates our commitment to Industrial Archaeology.
Edited by Professor Marilyn Palmer, the UK’s first professor of Industrial Archaeology, with contributions from some of the country’s leading specialists in industrial archaeology, this Handbook provides an informative and accessible guide to the industrial remains of the UK.
This book will be essential reading for professionals, academics, students and anyone with an interest in our industrial heritage, giving concise summaries of the history of different industries, together with descriptions of the structures and below-ground remains likely to be encountered. Extensive suggestions for further reading are included, as well as an explanation of the current legislative situation for industrial remains and the history of protection for these important monuments.
