The Laurion Silver Mines: A Review of Recent Researches and Results

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  07 September 2009

Extract

There appeared in Greece & Rome during the 1960's three articles devoted to aspects of the Athenian Silver mines in the Laurion district of southern Attica: a visitor's brief observations in C. Macdonald's ‘The Ancient Mine-workings of Laurion’ (vol. 8 (1961), 19–21, pis II–IV) and a scholar's description of the area and the history and organization of the mines in R. J. Hopper's ‘The Mines and Miners of Ancient Attica (ibid., 138–51), and then again an account of the geology of the area and the ancient methods of mining and ore-processing in C. J. K. Cunningham's, ‘The Silver of Laurion’, published six years later, but founded on visits made in 1962 (vol. 14 (1967), 145–56).
