Industrial Archaeology – A Handbook
Written by AIA members, Marilyn Palmer, Michael Nevell and Mark Sissons, this book was launched at the Ironbridge Weekend in April 2012.
From left to right are Michael Nevell, Mark Sissons, Catrina Appleby (CBA Publications Officer), Keith Falconer and Marilyn Palmer.
It is 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.
