The second volume examines the rise to world dominance of silver and gold production, during the first great output long-cycle (1125–1225), in new locations in Europe and sub-Saharan Africa. It explores the organisation of the industry at this time, the reversal of the contemporary specie flow and the distribution of these precious metals throughout Europe and to lands beyond the bounds of that continent. It also describes the beginnings of autonomous European base metal – lead, copper, tin and mercury production, the organisation of the “new” industry, its levels of output and the distribution of these metals to new groups of European consumers.
