Origins of Metallurgy in Eurasia - 13th October

‘All that Glitters: the Origins of Metallurgy in Eurasia’. This talk will be given by Ben Roberts, British Museum Curator of European Bronze Age,
Before joining the Dept. of Prehistory and Europe, Ben worked for a number of years on archaeological projects in Britain, France and Central America.  Recently he had particular responsibilities for researching  and co-writing the first 40 programmes of the British Museum’s fascinating Radio 4 series ‘ A History of the World in 100 objects’. This lecture on the spread of Metallurgy from the Middle-East will address the question of when and where metal was first produced in Europe and Asia.
Everyone is welcome: visitors £4, members £2.
