Swansea Copper: A Global History - Book Launch

Mon, 2020-11-02 11:23

During the eighteenth century, a revolutionary new ‘Welsh process’ of efficiently smelting copper led to Swansea becoming the epicentre of the global copper industry. Indeed, between the 1770s and the 1840s, the Swansea district routinely produced one-third of the world’s smelted copper and occasionally exceeded this proportion. It’s this incredible transnational history that has provoked a ground-breaking new study from Chris Evans and Louise Miskell.
