The BP Book of Industrial Archaeology
- The BP Book of Industrial Archaeology
- by Neil Cossons
- The Industrial Revolution in Britain was arguably the great divide in the evolution of mankind. It transformed a nation and paved the way for the progressive industrialisation first of Europe and then of the rest of the world. As the first industrial nation Britain is rich in physical remains - monuments to the men who pioneered industry and technology in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and the tangible evidence of the origins of our present culture. Industrial archaeology is primarily concerned with these remains.
- Neil Cossons has been active in the field of industrial archaeology from its early years and makes full use of his wide experience to provide one of the fullest and liveliest accounts of the subject yet published (1975). The main text is supported by extensive reference to the surviving sites and structures, a gazetteer pinpoints key locations and there is a list of societies and organisations and major museums of industry.
