Obtención de metales en la Prehistoria de la Península Ibérica

Pablo Gómez Ramos


Using methodology based on exhaustive research and critical view of the existing bibliography, as well as modern analytical methods such as optic and electronic microscopy and X-Ray fluorescence spectroscopy, this book examines metallurgy and smelting techniques used on Iberian peninsula from the Chalcolitic up to Roman Periods. The result is a broader picture showing unsophisticated metallurgy, simple smelting techniques based on the use of crucible-furnaces traces of which can be found in most settlements up to the Iron Age.
