Fife The Mining Kingdom
Fife, The Mining Kingdom. This was one of our fastest selling books ever and rightly so. Besides being the definitive work on the history of mining in the Kingdom, the Kingdom of Fife that is, it is packed full of fantastic photographs covering all the mining areas of the county. There are two hundred or so illustrations, representing pits and communities including Longannet, Bowhill, Valleyfield, Comrie, Fordell, Blairenbathie, Lumphinnans, the Nelly, Glencraig, Dundonald, Lochore, Kinglassie, Star, Rothes, Seafield, the Michael, Wellesley and more. The coverage is very comprehensive geographically and there are also many pictures featuring other aspects of mining life, housing, bands, rescue teams, quoiting, football and so on.
