CALL FOR PAPERS & REGISTRATION
Historical Metallurgy Society (HMS) Research in Progress 2011
Wednesday the 9th November, 2011
Department of Archaeology, University of Sheffield
This meeting is aimed at a wide variety of contributors, from historical and archaeological metallurgists to excavators, historians and economists. If you are working, or have just finished working, on a project related to archaeological or historical metallurgy, we would like to hear from you. We are particularly interested in bringing together contract and public sector archaeologists with academic researchers, and in fostering links between the different disciplines studying metallurgy and related activities. Whether you are a student, a researcher, an interested non-specialist, or a professional excavator, we invite you to meet others working in this field and present your research to an interested community.
Proposals for 10-15 minute oral papers are welcomed from anyone undertaking work in any area of ancient, historical, or industrial metallurgy, and from other researchers whose focus is of relevance to this subject.
Titles and 300 word abstracts should reach the organisers at [log in to unmask] by Monday 26th September.
Registration forms and updated conference details can be found on the conference website (http://hist-met.org/hmsrip2011.html). The cost will be £15 for HMS Members and £20 for non-members, and is inclusive of coffee and lunch.
General enquiries and abstracts can be directed to [log in to unmask] .
