I am extremely pleased to say we have confirmed the last chairperson for the Historical Metallurgy Society’s Research in Progress meeting, 2010!

In total we have four sessions being chaired by; Justine Bayley, Duncan Hook (British Museum), Marcos Martinón-Torres (UCL) and David A. Scott (UCLA). I am extremely pleased and grateful to the chairs for agreeing to participate.

As you can see from the full programme below, there’s some really interesting presentations and I am extremely happy that so many people have been interested in contributing.

We are still happy to have people, so if you’re interested in coming do drop me a line, and preferably email me a registration form (doc file). Payment can be made on the day if necessary.
