This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the metallographic study of ancient metals. Metallography is important both conceptually as a microstructural science and in terms of its application to the study of ancient and historic metals. Metallography is a well-established methodology for the characterization of the microstructure of metals, which continues to be significant today in quality control and characterization of metallic properties. Not only does the metallographic examination of ancient metals present its own challenges in terms of sample size and interpretation of evidence, but it must be integrated with archaeological data and cultural research in order to obtain the most meaningful results. Issues of authentication and the establishment of fakes and forgeries of metallic artefacts often involve metallographic evidence of both metal and patina or corrosion interface, as an essential component of such a study. The present volume sets out the basic features of relevant metallic systems, enhanced with a series of examples of typical microstructural types, with illustrative case studies and examples throughout the text derived from studies undertaken by the two authors. This book provides a comprehensive presentation of metallography for archaeologists, archaeometallurgists, conservators, conservation scientists and metallurgists of modern materials.

Written by eminent scholars in the field, this edited volume is the first to treat in a comprehensive manner the archaeology of metallurgy's origins, focusing specifically on initial uses of copper and bronze, as well as the coming of iron across Asia from the Eastern Mediterranean to the Far East. It is a volume that should serve for some time to come as the source of the fundamental information upon which larger interpretations of metallurgical developments in Asia will be grounded.

Hardbound. This comprehensive and well-organized dictionary is addressed to readers interested in archaeology, ancient art and the natural sciences. It is intended to bridge existing gaps in information, communication and language, between these fields of study of the humanities and the sciences. The dictionary provides succint definitions of the materials and technologies used to produce, modify and shape materials in the past and concise introductions to the scientific concepts and techniques now used to identify, characterize and date ancient materials and the technologies of altering them.The range of topics covered in the dictionary extends from the basic properties and characteristics of materials used in antiquity, their alteration and transformation into other materials and the fabrication of artificial materials, to modern methods for ascertaining their composition and authenticity, dating them and establishing their geological and geographic
