A great introduction to the iron industry of the Weald of Kent and Sussex from an authority on the subject. From the start of the iron exploration and use in the early Iron Age through to the great industry of the post medieval period it is a clear and concise chronology of the subject and an enjoyable read. For those that are interested the next book would be the Wealden iron industry by Cleere and Crossley.
