From the rear side cover: The Mendip hills in Somerset have been exploited for their minerals from pre-history to the twentieth century. This book records the results of the archaeological work at Charterhouse in 1993 and 1995. Central to the enquiry was Roman mining in the first century AD. Details include rich deposits of pottery and coins found at the site and also recorded is a mass of animal bone of the same date. Discussion of the significance of Mendip minerals in the early Roman economy is appended.
