Between 1812 and 1862 there were four major coal mining disasters on Tyneside, revealing the tragic shortcomings of the technology and safety measures employed in the pits. Coal provided energy, comfort and prosperity to society, but pitmen risked their lives deep underground mining it and bringing it to the surface.
This exhibition invites visitors to explore how new technology can take communities to the edge.
Part of the programme to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Hartley Pit Disaster.Segedunum Roman Fort, Baths and Museum
