Historical Metallurgy Society’s “Research in Progress 2008”

October 7, 2008

Are you undertaking research in historical metallurgy/archaeometallurgy?
Have you excavated an archaeological site or recorded a standing building
which had a metallurgical component?
Are you studying the history or economics of early metalworking?
If so, we invite you to contribute to the
Historical Metallurgy Society’s “Research in Progress 2008”.

This day meeting will take place in the Icons Suite of the National Museum Cardiff (part of Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales) from 10am to 5pm on 28th November 2008 and has the purpose of bringing together active researchers, both specialist and non-specialist.

Call for Papers

Offers of contributions are invited from anyone currently undertaking research in any area of historical metallurgy/archaeometallurgy. We particularly encourage contributions from those researchers, such as historians and field archaeologists, whose work may impinge on these disciplines but who are not themselves necessarily archaeometallurgical specialists. Contributions should be in the form of short 10-15 minutes oral presentations.

Titles and abstracts should reach the organiser by October 15th at the latest. Registration for attendance is required by November 7th. You can download a poster version of this call for papers from the HMS website (via the meeting’s webpage at  ).

Organiser Dr Tim Young, 54 Heol y Cadno, Thornhill, Cardiff CF14 9DY

The cost will be £18 for HMS Members, £20 non-members, and is inclusive of lunch. Cheques should be payable to the Historical Metallurgy Society please.
