Running for more than two decades, the IAMS Summer School 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.
