'Finished Labour of a Thousand Hands'

by Lynn Willies, Ianto Wain, Lynn Willis, Neville Redvers-Higgins

'Finished Labour of a Thousand Hands' Synopsis

The Combe Down Stone Quarries, which were the principal supplier of building stone for the great period of building in Bath during the 18th and 19th centuries, form a significant element of the wider landscape of the City of Bath World Heritage Site. Archaeological recording of the mine was required to allow preservation by record of features of archaeological interest. The results of the archaeological recording programme and laser and video scanning survey contributes not only to the study of Bath and its post-medieval development, but also to national and international research in mining and industrial archaeology.
