Study days “Dialogues entre archéologues et archéomètres autour des métaux non-ferreux anciens”

October 2019 9 & 10th – Maison de la recherche, University of Toulouse – Jean Jaurès

Study days co-organized by RHAdAMANTE & METAL teams of the TRACES laboratory (Toulouse, France)

Coordination : Marilou Nordez, Sandrine Baron, Pierre-Yves Milcent, Barbara Armbruster & Christian Rico

Abstract

Through cross-views on ancient metals, archaeometallurgy combines material science, technological approach and archaeological study. As its name suggests, this study day aims to bring together the various specialists in ancient metallurgy. To really understand archaeological objects, it is necessary to replace them not only in a complex chaîne opératoire, from the supply of raw materials to their burying, but also in a human environment. While archaeometrists focus mainly on the supply of raw materials, the nature and properties of metallic archaeomaterials, archaeologists work to replace the artifacts in their socio-economic and cultural context. The technological study is at the interface between these disciplines, revealing the know-how of craftmen/artists.

It sometimes difficult to the specialists of these different disciplines to exchange because of different methods, training and questions. This is why the methods and approaches of both sides must necessarily be combined in order to progress. Through this transversality, the origin, constraints and history of materials can be reconstructed as well as certain socio-economic, technical and cultural mechanisms of ancient societies, a fundamental entry point for addressing issues such as material choices, alloy recipes, production methods and disruptions and continuity in supply and trade networks.

This is why we would like to highlight the relevance of this interdisciplinary approach, through the presentation of a few case that should enable archaeometallurgy specialists to discuss common scientific issues and approaches. A previous study day, co-organized around a similar approach, had focused on iron. This time, the focus will be on non-ferrous metals: gold, copper and copper alloys, lead.

These dialogues will take the form of case studies presented in at least two voices and will aim to answer several questions: what can we say about a metallic object studied both in its archaeological context and in the laboratory? What can archaeologists and archaeometrists expect when they share their skills? What are the results of such a dialogue? This scientific event will be resolutely placed under the sign of interdisciplinarity, a term that is too often overused and that must be rehabilitated.
