The region has a mining history dating back to at... More > least the 16th Century, but the hey-day of female employment was the 19th century, when most were working at the copper mines. It was at this time that women and girls also began to be employed at the clay works. The differences in working conditions and employment practices between these industries are described.

A final chapter tells the stories of individual mine women of the area, including those who were recruited for work during World War One and World war Two.< Less
