Accidental and Experimental Archaeometallurgy: papers and reports from the 2010 meeting in West Dean.
Experimental archaeology has acquired a central position amongst the many methods and techniques that have been used to expand our understanding of early metallurgy. Nevertheless, experimental practices remain mysterious to some and poorly disseminated among wider communities. This volume represents an attempt to remedy the paucity of published material and includes many contributions that underscore important theoretical and methodological concerns alongside a number of case studies. Leading figures from across this broad community have come together to provide a coherent publication which details the scope of a number of practices that together are known as experimental archaeometallurgy.
Edited by David Dungworth and Roger Doonan.
“...this volume is important, perhaps essential. For in one place there are great resumés of what has been achieved and multiples suggestions of what needs to be done. Splendid, readable and parts exciting".
