Coal Mining Ancestors Online Course

For family and Social Historians

Coal was an important part of Britain's history and many families had some involvement in the industry but what did they do? What was it like to work in the Victorian collieries and how did it change in the 20th century? Who were the miners and how did they live and where? What role did the Miners’ Unions play in the life of the collieries and what was the 'Miners’ Welfare'? Where do you look for more information about the miners in your family?

Find out more in this short two-week course with tutor Richard Marks.
