As well as providing theoretical courses on archaeometallurgy I also run practical and experimental based courses. These last roughly 5-6 days and include much of the same information as the theoretical course, but also provide the opportunity for individuals to take part in metalworking experiments. This course is jointly run with other professional archaeometallurgists.
Currently, these courses take place at Sedgeford, during the SHARP summer excavation programme. Previous years students have made a bloomery furnace and numerous casting hearths. All students get to make and take copper alloy objects home.
Below are a few videos showing some of the experiments carried out.
