Industrial Archaeology - A Handbook
Written by AIA members, Marilyn Palmer, Michael Nevell and Mark Sissons, this book was launched at the Ironbridge Weekend in April 2012. From left to right are Michael Nevell, Mark Sissons, Catrina Appleby (CBA Publications Officer), Keith Falconer and Marilyn Palmer.
It will be essential reading for professionals, academics, students and anyone with an interest in our industrial heritage, giving concise summaries of the history of different industries, together with descriptions of the structures and below-ground remains likely to be encountered. Extensive suggestions for further reading are included, as well as an explanation of the current legislative situation for industrial remains and the history of protection for these important monuments.
344 pages, 121 illustrations including colour, ISBN 978-1902771922 £20.00
More details are on CBA Publications, where orders can be placed.
Crossing Paths or Sharing Tracks
The papers presented at the 2008 conference jointly organised between AIA, SPMA and IPMAG have been published and are available to AIA members with a discount of £15 at a cost of £35 instead of the usual £50. For 416 pages, this is good value! The whole conference was prompted by the debate on 'people versus machines' in IA News and the papers include contributions from Roger Holden, David Gwyn and Mike Nevell on this topic as well as David Cranstone, Paul Belford, Tony Crosby, Richard and Caron Newman. The outcomes of the debate have been summed up by Marilyn Palmer in the 'Conclusion: the Way Forward'
Crossing Paths can be obtained from the publisher, Boydell and Brewer Ltd., PO Box 9, Woodbridge, Suffolk IP12 3DF, www.boydell.co.uk/titlesaz.htm. AIA members need to say that they are members to obtain a discount.See the book review by Jim Symonds in Industrial Archaeology Review 31.2 November 2009.
