Item description for Prehistorical Iron Smelting (Acta Jutlandica) by L. Norbach...

Although the Northern European Iron Age lasted two millennia, the "golden age" in the study of its smelting sites is about to end after less than 40 years. Professional excavations did not really begin until the 1960's, and, with most unexplored sites situated in topsoil, the increasingly deep ploughs of modern agriculture destroy more of this heritage every year. At this critical juncture, the papers gathered here offer a generous glimpse into the state of iron smelting research in both Eastern and Western Europe. The first section focuses on iron production and settlement and takes account of the related evidence regarding, for example, social structures and agrarian production. Regional studies are a natural continuation of this focus on the "local" settlement, and the second section of the book comprises various examples of these. Metallographic studies are an important part of the study of iron smelting. Contributions on this are divided in a "local" and a regional part. The last section of the book contains contributions dealing with that very important scientific aid - magnetometer surveying. This volume will appeal to those with strong interests in the Iron Age, European archaeology or the history of metallurgy. (Illustrated).
