Archaeometallurgy in Europe International Conference is being organized every four years since 2003, in Milan (2003), Grado-Aquileia (2007) and Bochum (2011). The Madrid Edition to be held in June 2015 represents the consolidation of the most important forum for scientific discussion on early metalworking in Europe and far abroad.

This year’s main purpose is putting together all the interdisciplinary knowledge and regional studies that has been accumulated in the framework of the conference series to negotiate a historical picture that will help facing future challenges.
