Subject: RE: Folklore: thatcher's language
Cornish mining developed many terms that went on to be used world wide.
This was largely spread by the migrating miners as the mines declined.
The main legacy is the Cambourne school of mines, part of Essex University.
Adits and Adventurers and Bal-maidens and deads, to name but a few!
There are several glossaries on the internet but none seem to want to link.
