The Miskin Project

The Miskin Project aims to investigate the exploitation of the mineral resources of the area around Miskin (Rhondda, Cynon, Taff), in an area broadly between Llantrisant and M4 Motorway. This area has rich natural resources, including coal, lead ores and (of greatest importance for this project) iron ores.

The fieldwork components of the project so far are:
