A Mine Of Information

Postby An Absent Humphrey » Tue Jan 05, 2016 2:05 pm

Chaps.
I'm looking for some inspirational illustrations of a medieval mine.
Specifically, the mine head. Not a military mine, but a coal/iron/ore etc one.
I'm looking for something to get my creative juices flowing so I can model one.
I have done a Google image search, but nothing's really getting my minge batter flowing, so I wondered if any of you had seen good illustrations of these things - whether historical, reconstruction, or maybe fantasy. I don't care. I just want to get a feel for what one should look like and to inspire me.
Chaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaars, all.

Found these ages ago, not medieval but inspiring (There was a full guide on how he built it as well, I don't know what the link is)
I included a picture of a couple of great peaks to help you concentrate

Think they are from de Re Metallica by Georg Bauer (aka Agricola)(not the fourth one 8) ) from similar period to Durer;

Loads of illustrations of mining and general metallurgy in it - more piccies here:

What would be around the head, or adit, would depend on what was being mined - smelting pits, settling ponds etc.

You are a sick bastard. FYI most vampires are too picky to even look at a nose-bleed.

That's castle building, but the same equipment/techniques to lift rocks up to towers, would be used to lift rocks up from holes, yes?
It is. And it is not. When it is, and when it is not, is the question or the answer, or both or neither.
