Running for more than two decades, the IAMS Summer School in Archaeo-metallugy 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, and the analysis of metallic artefacts. Lectures will cover both ferrous and non-ferrous metals, involve artefact handling sessions, and demonstrate a variety of investigative techniques (metallography, SEM-EDS, and pXRF).

The Institute for Archaeo-Metallurgical Studies (IAMS) 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.
