Are you undertaking research in historical metallurgy/archaeometallurgy?
Have you excavated an archaeological site or recorded a standing building
which had a metallurgical component? Are you studying the history or
economics of early metalworking? If so, we invite you to contribute to the
Historical Metallurgy Society's "Research in Progress 2008".
This day meeting will take place in the Icons Suite of the National Museum
Cardiff (part of Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales) from 10am to
5pm on 28th November 2008 and has the purpose of bringing together
active researchers, both specialist and non-specialist.
Call for Papers
Offers of contributions are invited from anyone currently undertaking
research in any area of historical metallurgy/archaeometallurgy. We
particularly encourage contributions from those researchers, such as
historians and field archaeologists, whose work may impinge on these
disciplines but who are not themselves necessarily archaeometallurgical
specialists. Contributions should be in the form of short 10-15 minutes
Titles and abstracts should reach the organiser by October 15th at the
latest. Registration for attendance is required by November 7th. You can
download a poster version of this call for papers from the HMS website
(via the meeting's webpage at http://www.hist-met.org/resprog2008.html ).
