IAMS Summer School

Start: Jun 25, 2012 12:00 AM
End: Jul 06, 2012 12:00 AM

Location: UCL Institute of Archaeology


This year's IAMS Summer School will be held at UCL's Institute of Archaeology between 25th June and 6th of July.

Every year, the Institute for Archaeo-Metallurgical Studies provides a short intensive course combining lectures on ancient mining from Professor Tim Shaw from the Imperial College of Science and Technology as well as several presentations by preeminent scholars in the field of archaeo-metallurgy. These lectures cover a wide range of topics in the discipline such as alloying technology, furnace design, technical ceramic production, and experimental reconstructions. The wide range of expertise and diverse knowledge base of the scholars invited to present at the summer school ensures that it remains an ever evolving teaching experience that provides world class training for anyone interested in learning more about this interesting and emerging field of study.

This year the IAMS summer school will be held in association with NARNIA at UCL's Institute of Archaeology from the 25th of June to the 6 of July 2012. Following the same successful format as previous years, the course will be divided into two one-week sections.

The first week will be taught by Professor Tim Shaw of Imperial College London and Dr. Simon Timberlake of the Cambridge Archaeological Unit (University of Cambridge). It will cover various aspects of ancient mining and extractive metallurgy.

The second week will be taught by a number of researchers in the field of archaeo-metallurgy and will cover a wide range of topics. The list of speakers are yet to be determined and details will be announced here in due time.
