Mesa redonda en torno a la publicación de un número monográfico de la revista De Re Metallica

The study of copper mining and metallurgy is a central theme of pre- and protohistoric research in general, and especially in the Iberian Peninsula, praised from classical sources for its wealth as a metal emporium in antiquity.

Recently, the SEDPGYM journal De Re Metallica has dedicated a monographic issue to this question, in which a number of prestigious researchers have collaborated, all of whom are working on projects related to copper mining and/or metallurgy, some focusing on the Chalcolithic period, others up to the Iron Age. The monograph is an update on the subject, both in terms of mining sites and metallurgy through archaeological sites, materials and their analysis.

Some of the editors and collaborating researchers will take part in this round table to discuss aspects of mining, copper metallurgy and the most modern analytical and identification techniques.
