Coal Not Dole: exhibition at the MRC

The Modern Records Centre's new exhibition marks the 40th anniversary of the start of the 1984/5 miners' strike and draws on a range of archives held at the Centre, including some material from the recently arrived NUM collection.

Documents on display include material about the effect of the long strike on communities (including in the Coventry area), the work of support groups, and some of the divisions caused by the bitter dispute.
