Sorry for cross posting, The Historical Metallurgy Society are happy to
announce a call for papers for our 2019 AGM.
Power and Control over Metallurgy Production
AGM Summer Meeting
Saturday the 8th June 2019
This meeting will explore how metal production was controlled in different
societies, in the UK and further afield. The plan is to explore control in a
range of periods, including how the Roman military controlled lead and iron
production and the Anglo-Saxon elites use of precious metals in Anglo-Saxon
palace workshops and beyond.
The venue for the meeting is Reading, which had one of the richest
monasteries with a royal connection and the museum has a display of finds
from nearby Silchester. The meeting will be held in the Victorian Town Hall.
Call for papers for oral presentations. We would be interested in papers on
all aspects of metallurgy, ferrous and non-ferrous, from sites or
collections associated with military, religious or elite settings where
control may have been a factor. Or papers discussing the control of
metallurgical production in past societies.
The deadline for abstracts 28th January, which should be c. 250 words.
These should be sent to <mailto:[log in to unmask]> [log in to unmask]
The programme will be announced in Mid February.
