This Special Issue presents 15 papers covering experimental approaches to a variety of archaeological materials and contexts. It was prompted by the organisers of the Second International Conference on Archaeometallurgy
(ICA II), which was held at the Lettres Sorbonne Université and École Normale Supérieure de Cachan in Paris, and the Plateforme expérimentale de Melle (CNRS, Institut de Recherche sur les Archéomatériaux) in the Poitou region, France, from the 25th of September to the 1st of October 2019.
Four of the papers in this SI are particularly relevant to Egyptian Archaeology and Egyptology, dealing with glass bead making at Amarna, bread production during the Middle Kingdom, fuel used for copper smelting at Ayn Soukhna,
and Third Intermediate cartonnage manufacture (Open Access).
