For two periods in the last 2000 years, during the first part of the Roman occupation and in Tudor and early Stuart time, the Weald of south-east England was the most productive iron-making region in the British Isles. Moreover, from the late Iron Age until the early nineteenth century the ironstones and woodland of this area provided raw materials for over 800 ironworking sites. This book examines the technology of iron making and the localities and people involved in this business. In this accessible study Jeremy Hodgkinson explores the archaeology and history of a regional industry of international significance.

Book Description The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. UK ed. Language: English. Brand new Book. For two periods of British history - the first part of the Roman occupation and the Tudor and early Stuart periods - the Weald of south-east England was the most productive iron-producing region in the country. Looking across the tranquil Wealden countryside, it is hard to identify anything that hints at its industrial past. Yet 400 years ago, nearly 100 furnaces and forges roared and hammered there, the smoke from charcoal-making curling up from the surrounding woods and the roads bustling with wagons laden with ore and iron sows. Many British naval campaigns, including the Spanish Armada, the wars against the Dutch and The Seven Years' War, relied on Wealden iron cannon; the pressures of conflict driving forward the development of iron-producing technology. For a time the economy of the whole area was dominated by the production of iron and its raw materials, providing employment, generating prosperity and shaping the landscape irrevocably. Drawing on a wealth of local evidence, this book explores the archaeology and history of an area whose iron industry was of international importance. Seller Inventory # AA79780752445731
