A Barbarous and Ungovernable People! - A Short History of the Miners of Kingswood Forest, by Steve Mills
Published by the Bristol Radical History Group in 2009, 20 pages. A5 size booklet (N3795)
The people of Kingswood Forest (a community situated on the edge of Bristol) supplied the south west of England and the industries of Bristol with coal, and it is fair to say that without the Kingswood Forest coal Bristol would not be the city it is today. However, the relationship between the two communities was often very strained, and this fascianting booklet tells the story of the misunderstanding and mistrust which, from time to time, blew up into full scale conflict and violence!
Condition of the booklet is generally excellent. The cover is clean and tidy, the staple spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound
