The Industrial Revolution in Iron: The Impact of British Coal Technology in Nineteenth-century Europe
Chris Evans, Göran Rydén
Ashgate, 2005 - History - 200 pages
The essays in this volume, each written by an acknowledged expert in the field, trace the fortunes of British coal technology as it spread across the European continent, from Sweden and Russia to the Alps and Spain, and supply an authoritative picture of industrial transformation in one of the key industries of the 19th century. In this period iron making in continental Europe was transformed by the take-up of technologies such as coke smelting and iron puddling that had already revolutionised the British iron industry.
