IAMS Summer School in Archaeometallurgy 2017: Registrations Open

Publication date:

Furnace

Running for two decades, the IAMS Summer School in Archaeometallugy is offered to anyone 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, depending on the topic, demonstrations with analytical instruments or field experiments.

This year, the Summer School will take place 12-23 June, primarily at the Institute of Archaeology but also including three day experimental iron smelting workshop in Monkton Up Wimborne, Dorset. You can find a preliminary programme below. If you have any queries, or would like to register, please get in touch with Carlotta Farci (carlotta.farci.13@ucl.ac.uk).

Summer School 2016

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.
