Robert Mushet is the father of modern steel alloys. His pioneering experiments, carried out at his Darkhill Ironworks, near Coleford in the Forest of Dean, preceeded the work of Bessemer but his attempts to profit from his work ultimately ended in failure. This book seeks to afford him his rightful place in the history of iron and steel making, and to act as a guide to both the man and to the historic Darkhill site. It is a useful introduction to a complex and often bitter genius, whilst anyone wishing to visit Darkhill and the remains of Mushet's later Titanic Steelworks nearby, will find it an invaluable reference. Well illustrated with maps and photographs, inluding many not previously published of both the Titanic and Darkhill sites.
