The County of Monmouth is a shire in the southwest of Great Britain. The eastern part of the county is mainly agricultural, while rich mineral resources were discovered in the western valleys in the 18th century. This led to the western part of the county becoming highly industrialized with coal mining and iron working becoming major employers between the 18th and late 20th centuries.
