We would like to invite you to the annual Summer School on Extractive
Mining and Metallurgy at the Institute of Archaeology in London.
Running from Monday 21 June to Friday 2 July 2004, it offers one week
on mining technology, taught by Professors Tim Shaw and Beno
Rothenberg, and one week on extractive metallurgy, taught by Beno
Rothenberg, Vince Pigott, H-G Bachmann, John Merkel and Thilo Rehren
(in chronological order of appearance...).

The Summer School is organised and sponsored by the Institute for
Archaeo-Metallurgical Studies (IAMS), aiming at students and
professionals with an interest in ancient technology and
archaeometallurgy. The admission fee covers
handouts and biscuits and a small contribution towards the costs; it is
kept low to encourage and enable student participation. Admission for
one week is GBP 75, for both weeks GBP 120 (single day attendance GBP
Unfortunately, we can not provide support for accommodation or travel

Details of the programme can be found at IAMS' webpage, and you can contact Xander Veldhuijzen at
the Institute of Archaeology / IAMS at for
bookings and requests.

The courses are intended for anybody interested in early mining and
metallurgy, and require no existing specialist knowledge. However,
opportunity will be given to explore specific aspects in more detail,
within the given schedule. Both weeks can be taken independently from
each other.
