Notes: Description: This book provides a comprehensive history of the development of extractive metallurgy. Drawing on sampling techniques, laboratory investigations, and the latest archaeological discoveries in Europe, India, North America, and China, Craddock brings together for the first time the evidence for the inception of mining and smelting. He shows that early techniques were often very different from what has previously been believed and that extractive metallurgy has developed similarly around the world but at different times.
