The Cornish Mining Heritage Programme (CMHP) is committed to delivering quality research in both the academic and mining heritage sectors.

to this end, the CMHP is pursuing a joint research project with the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site Office entitled: Mining a shared heritage: harnessing the potential of Cornish transnationalism. Partnerships are being forged with organisations in Europamines, the membership of which has elected the CMHP to co-ordinate and seek funding for a European-funded research project into pan-European mining migration.

Important links are also being built in the academic world and this programme is working closely with other University projects, such as the Cornwall Audio Visual Archive (CAVA). The CMHP has also contributed material to the Sense of Place Initiative, the innovative LEA funded Project which provides teachers with specially written resources to deliver the curriculum using Cornish examples.

The CMHP is also presently building a joint research project with Bath Spa University that will be a comparative analysis of Cornish and Irish miners' migration in the nineteenth century Transatlantic world. Click on the toolbar above to find out more.
