A volume that focuses on the health and care requirements of the inhabitants of the slate communities of Dyffryn Peris and surrounding areas in Snowdonia. When the industry was at its height, there were 14,000 miners in Gwynedd. The dangers at work, together with the infections and illnesses that arose from poverty and lack of health provision contributed to industrial unrest.
