Historical Metallurgy Society Research in Progress Meeting

Event date: 
Friday, 14 November, 2014
Organised by: 
the Historical Metallurgy Society (HMS)
Kind of Event: 
for Professionals

Historical Metallurgy society in conjunction with the Research Laboratory of Archaeology and the History of Art, Oxford, would like to invite submissions for papers for a ‘Research in Progress’ study day. This meeting is aimed at a wide variety of contributors, from historical and archaeological metallurgists to excavators, historians and economists.

We would like to hear from anyone working on projects related to archaeological or historical metallurgy, and are particularly interested in bringing together contract and public sector archaeologists with academic researchers, and in fostering links between the different disciplines studying metallurgy and related activities. Whether you are a student, a researcher, an interested non-specialist, or a professional excavator, we invite you to meet others working in this field and present your research to an interested community.

Proposals for 15-20 minute oral papers in any way related to historical metallurgy are welcome. Abstracts due by 15th of June.

Conference registration will cost £15, including tea, coffee and biscuits. This does not include lunch, however we will be reserving spaces at local historic pubs if delegates wish to eat together, to allow people to better explore Oxford.


General enquiries and abstracts can be directed to Victoria Sainsbury or Philly Howarth at
