HMS Call for Papers

The next Historical Metallurgy Society Research in Progress Meeting will take place at the University of Liverpool on Thursday 9th November 2017.

This meeting is aimed at a wide variety of contributors, from historical and archaeological metallurgists to excavators, historians and economists. If you are working, or have just finished working, on a project related to archaeological or historical metallurgy, we would like to hear from you.

We are particularly interested in bringing together contract and public sector archaeologists with academic researchers, and in fostering links between the different disciplines studying metallurgy and related activities.

Whether you are a student, a researcher, an interested non-specialist, or a professional excavator, we invite you to meet others working in this field and present your research to an interested community.

Proposals for 10-15 minute oral papers are welcomed from anyone undertaking work in any area of ancient, historical, or industrial metallurgy, and from other researchers whose focus is of relevance to this subject.  Please send your abstract to hlcevent@liverpool.ac.uk by Friday 29th September 2017.

HMS prize for the Best Student Research

The HMS prize for the Best Student Research is offered for the best presentation by a student (or recent graduate within 12 months of graduation) at the annual Research in Progress meeting as chosen by those members of HMS Council present at the meeting. So if you are eligible please indicate when you submit your abstract.

The HMS will also be offering a small number of student travel bursaries.  If you wish to be considered for one of these, please indicate this alongside your abstract.

General enquiries can be directed to hlcevent@liverpool.ac.uk
