The 5th International Conference Archaeometallurgy in Europe

The International Conference Archaeometallurgy in Europe was organized every four years since 2003, in Milan (2003), Grado-Aquileia (2007), Bochum (2011) and Madrid (2015). These conferences represent the most important forum for scientific discussion on early metalworking in Europe and other related regions of the Old World. The most important goal of this scientific symposium is to present new insights, new approaches and new results of complex examinations in the field of archaeometallurgy.

The fifth conference will be held in Miskolc, in Hungary, from the 19th to the 21st of June 2019. It is organized by the Institute of Metallurgy, the Institute of Physical Metallurgy, Metalforming and Nanotechnology and Department of Prehistory and Archaeology of the University of Miskolc (ME), represented by the Archaeometallurgical Research Group of the University of Miskolc (ARGUM), in collaboration with the Institute of Archaeology of the Research Centre for the Humanities of the Hungarian Academy of the Sciences (MTA BTK RI), the Special Committee of Materials Sciences and Technology of the Regional Committee of Miskolc of the Hungarian Academy of the Sciences (MTA MAB ATSZB), the Special Committee of Industrial Archaeology and Archaeometry of the Regional Committee of Veszprém of the Hungarian Academy of the Sciences (MTA VEAB IAMB) and the Archaeometry Research Group of the Institute for Geological and Geochemical Research of the Hungarian Academy of the Sciences (MTA GGI AKCS).

We aim to continue with the good professional standards developed in the conferences up to now, to enlarge the focus of the conference towards Eastern Europe, and to emphasise and strengthen the interdisciplinary character and activities of archaeometallurgy.

The local organizing committee consists of a few members from the Archaeometallurgical Research Group of the University of Miskolc (ARGUM) (www.archeometallurgia.hu or www.argum.hu). ARGUM is the only Hungarian interdisciplinary research group in the field of archaeometallurgy, and its members are archaeologists, metallurgical and material engineers, historians and mineralogists. It was officially founded in 2011, but the founders have been working on archaeometallurgical topics for more than twenty years.
