Archaeology and Archaeo-metallurgy

Archaeology Laboratories are also incorporated into the institute, which allow investigation of past metallurgical processes right through from smelting to finishing. Work carried out in these laboratories involves characterisation of the products and residues of these processes dating back to the 5th millenium BC through to the Industrial Revolution and come from both archaeological post-excavation and museum based projects.
