This book covers the latest research in the field of ancient Asian metal-working in South and Southeast Asia, China and West Asia, concentrating mainly on copper alloys.
The papers presented in this volume are authored by leading international experts in archaeometallurgy who gathered in Washington D.C. to celebrate one of the Freer Gallery's earliest technical research topics - the study of ancient Chinese bronzes and other copper-alloy metalwork from Asia.
Early casting techniques and technical studies of bronzes in China, Thailand and Vietnam are joined by investigations into ten millennia of metallurgy in the Middle East.
