Iron in Archaeology: Bloomery Smelters and Blacksmiths in Europe and Beyond is an international conference in honour of Radomír Pleiner in the 50th year of the CPSA.
The aim of the conference is to bring together scholars involved in research on early ironworking and to share the newest results and experiences achieved in this field. Very welcome contributions are those informing about recently excavated bloomeries and smithies, about results of analyses of slags and iron artefacts, about new analytical methods developed, new trends and achieved results in experimental archaeometallurgy of iron etc.
The event will be held at Prague in the spring of 2017, thus 30 years after R. Pleiner himself organized a similar CPSA conference at Liblice near Prague. Conferences organized under the auspice of the CPSA have already a long tradition, which will be, by the forthcoming event, revived and continued.
