The papers in this volume underscore the role that analytical techniques can play in the investigation of artifacts and debris by providing information about the technology of metallurgy in antiquity. They include contributions on copper production in Transjordan; bronze casting in classical Greece; a historical account of the Turm-Rosenhof silver mine in Germany; analytical studies of Etruscan bronze mirrors, lead and bronze artifacts from Carthage, prehistoric and early historic artifacts of the Inuit people of the Canadian Arctic, and a variety of artifacts from colonial Pennsylvania.
