is an international body whose purpose is to
initiate and promote research into the origins and developments of mining and metallurgy
and its culture-historical significance, from its earliest, prehistoric
beginnings to recent times.
IAMS is a registered UK charity affiliated to the UCL Institute of Archaeology, and associated with the Wolfson Archaeological Science Laboratories.

Running for over a decade, the IAMS Summer School typically offers classes to those interested in the archaeology of metallurgy. The course is aimed at professionals, academics, students, and enthusiasts and covers a diverse range of topics, including mining, metal production, experimental reconstruction, field methods, to the analysis of metallic artefacts. Lectures typically cover both ferrous and non-ferrous metals and will involve artefact handling sessions as well as demonstrations with analytical instruments such as a scanning electron microscope with attached energy dispersive spectrometer (SEM-EDS) and portable x-ray fluorescence (pXRF). Past summer schools have been held as far away as Beijing and at times have had an overall theme, but they tend to cover as broad a range of topics as possible. More...
