(p.179) 8 The Central European Mining Regions in the Early Modern Period
Marginal Europe


Oxford University Press

This chapter deals with the mining areas of central Europe in the boom period of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, particularly those engaged in silver and copper mining and metallurgy. Mining revived in central Europe in the mid-fifteenth century. The causes for the revival lay in both supply and demand conditions. As far as supply is concerned, two factors in particular favoured expansion: new kinds of metal ores, and technological innovations.

Keywords:   silver, copper mining, central Europe, metallurgy, metal ores
