Description The study of historical mining regions has in a number of cases reached a level that makes us consider their shared and different structural and development features. There are many, both the absolute and relative chronology of the origins and the key phases of mining, differently functioning organisation of the processing and metallurgy workshops, or a locally specific relationship between mining and settlement. An important step forward appears to be the definition of comparative criteria which must involve approaches of numerous disciplines (mining archaeology, deposit geology and mineralogy, mining history, as well as related natural sciences). It is only these criteria that show in which regions we should seek answers to particular historical questions.
