On Behalf of the People:
Work, Community and Class in the British Coal Industry 1947-1994
National Mining Museum Scotland was pleased to work in partnership with the On Behalf of the People team in the development of this project.
This project examines the economic, political and social history of the nationalised British coal industry (1947–1994). Through a study of eight collieries located in England, Scotland, and Wales, the project explores the rich and complex history of the nationalised industry, mining communities and the lives of those who worked in the industry and their families.
