Reminder: Historical Metallurgy Society, 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.
The closing data for submission of abstracts is this week and approaching
rapidly, but there are still a few slots left in the timetable. I would like to
encourage anyone working on research associated with ancient or historic
metallurgy to participate in this meeting and to present a short paper on their
current studies. Contributions should be in the form of short 10-15 minute oral
presentations. Papers already offered cover a broad range of topics from
prehistory to the 20th century, from analytical studies to field survey and from
artefact studies to economics.
Full details of the meeting are available on the HMS website at
Registration for attendance is required by November 7th.
