Dorset in the Age of Steam
Dorset in the Age of Steam
  • Description
Rural Dorset hardly noticed the Industrial Revolution as it swept through England in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, yet the county has seen a fascinating variety of activities. The traditional industries were based on materials provided by the local geology and agriculture, such as quarrying for stone, clay and shale, the manufacture of lime, cement, bricks, pottery and tiles, or malting, brewing, corn milling, rope making and textiles. This copiously illustrated book examines these and many other aspects of Dorset's history in the industrial period, while the archaeology illustrates how the physical remains of industry are a fascinating legacy of Dorset's past whether in town or country. ISBN 1871164907, 297x210mm, hardback, 160 pages and over 200 photographs.
