Experimental Event

Colour Horizontal

Saturday 26th November 2016
Down Farm, Cranborne
Gill Juleff and Jake Keen


HMS, with Exeter University and the generous support of the GB Sasakawa Foundation, is pleased to be hosting three visitors from Japan. To give those interested in learning more about historical metallurgy in Japan as well as experimental smelting both here and in Japan, we are holding an informal day meeting centered around an experimental smelt by Jake Keen. The smelt will be outdoors but there is also a barn with tea-making facilities, power points and seating where there will be an opportunity to network with Professor Murakami and Yasufumi Sasazawa and Seiji Manabe. There may also be an opportunity for participants to join a guided tour of the archaeological sites and museum at Down Farm during the day.

Numbers will be limited, so if you are interested in attending please email Gill Juleff This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to secure your place or for more information.
