Since the beginning of the Bronze Age, mankind has gone to extraordinary lengths to extract tin from the ground. Prized both in itself and for its use in various alloys, tin remains one of the most widely used metals in the modern world. This book depicts the full cycle of tin mining, from explaining why tin minerals are only found in certain places and the ways in which these deposits were discovered, through to the methods used to mine for tin, and how these techniques were refined over time and improved through evolving scientific understanding and technological advances.
