Caption

Miners and their wives, 19th-century artwork. The role of women in coal mining varied over time from country to country. By 1842, women and children were banned from working in coal mines in the UK, though previously they had been used to carry coal to the surface, and as coal mine workers at the surface. This artwork, which was published in Mines and Miners (L. Simonin, 1868), is based on a photograph taken at the Colleries of Charleroi, in Belgium.
