Good morning list,
I thought I'd bring your attention to the following publication:

There is a new publication about to be published, which presents the
papers of the very successful symposium on medieval copper and brass,
which was held in 2014 in Namur and Dinant.

English:
This volume contains the proceedings of the International Conference on
Medieval Copper Alloys Production, held at Dinant and Namur on 15, 16
and 17 May 2014. The conference was organised by the Service public de
Wallonie (Belgium) and the Institut national de recherches
archéologiques préventives (France). The proceedings include 34 original
contributions presented by archaeologists, historians, conservators, art
historians, and other specialists, including metallurgists and chemists.
Collectively, they show the great diversity of approaches being taken to
elaborate the multiple themes associated with copper and its alloys in
the material culture of medieval and post-medieval Europe. In the late
Middle Ages, there was a gradual increase in the use of copper and its
alloys for making everyday objects, whether for dress accessories, such
as belt buckles or small decorative studs, or in kitchens and houses
where the metal became a cauldron, ewer, basin, or lavabo. In contrast
to these common objects fabricated in serial or mass production, were
the exceptional, discrete objects satisfying the needs of the
aristocracy and liturgy. Such made-to-order masterpieces might include
aquamanilia, candelabra, or lecterns. Additionally, copper alloys were
used for more colossal works of art such as columns, doors,
baptisteries, fountains, funeral monuments and, of course, bells. Copper
was equally sought in artisanal contexts, for artillery, for musical
instruments, and for coinage. In exploring such a vast subject from
multiple points of view, this volume will be of interest not only to
archaeologist, but also to those involved in the history of techniques,
art history, economic history, and social history. It is aimed both at
an informed public and to those simply curious about the history of the
Middle Ages in Europe.

Français:
Cet ouvrage contient les actes d'un colloque international consacré aux
productions médiévales en alliage à base de cuivre qui s'est tenu à
Dinant et à Namur les 15, 16 et 17 mai 2014. Ces journées ont été
organisées par le Service public de Wallonie (Belgique) et l'Institut
national de recherches archéologiques préventives (France). Les actes
rassemblent 34 contributions originales livrées par des spécialistes,
archéologues, historiens, historiens de l'art ou encore métallurgistes
et chimistes. Ils montrent la grande diversité des approches et des
thèmes abordés au moyen de ce matériau très présent dans la culture
matérielle. Au Bas Moyen Âge, le cuivre entre progressivement dans la
fabrication de nombreux objets du quotidien, que ce soit pour la parure,
sous forme de boucles de ceintures ou de petits éléments décoratifs du
costume, ou encore dans la cuisine et les maisons quand il devient
chaudron, aiguière, bassin ou puisette. À ces productions en série,
souvent de masse, s'opposent des travaux réalisés sur commande pour
l'aristocratie ou à des fins liturgiques. Le métal se décline alors sous
l'aspect d'aquamaniles, de chandeliers d'autel, de lutrins… Le matériau
est utilisé pour des œuvres monumentales comme des colonnes, des portes,
des fonts baptismaux, des fontaines, des monuments funéraires ou encore
des cloches. On trouve aussi le cuivre dans des contextes artisanaux,
dans l'artillerie, les instruments de musique ou encore la monnaie. En
explorant un vaste sujet par des angles variés, ce livre intéresse
l'archéologie bien sûr, mais aussi l'histoire des techniques, l'histoire
de l'art, l'histoire économique ou encore l'histoire sociale. Il
s'adresse à un public averti, ou plus simplement curieux de l'histoire
du Moyen Âge en Europe.

Best,
Bastian
