ABSTRACT
The article presents issues concerning the history of several-century-old mining activity in the area of Lower Silesia (in Poland) and its remains, especially including studies conducted in the scope of mining history and its heritage (including mining archaeology). It is emphasized that further intensive, interdisciplinary work is required in order to identify, protect and secure the survived post-mining objects in the described area.
