Killed in a Coalpit II; Lives of the Somerset Colliers by D.P. Lindegaard. £25.00

This book is a companion study to ‘Killed in a Coalpit – the lives of the Kingswood miners of the Bristol coalfield’. It focuses on the tragic loss of life in the Somerset Coalfields but also uncovers many colourful doings above ground, and includes the lives and roles of women in the coal mining districts who were, as a general rule, even more forgotten than the men.

It will provide a useful tool for researchers and for others and will act as a reminder of times past, both good and bad.
