METALLA

The journal METALLA gets its name from the Latin and Greek term referring to metals, minerals and mining, and since 1994 it has been an outlet for scientific research on the subjects of mining archaeology, metallurgy, conservation science and historic preservation.

METALLA has been redesigned in 2016 to be a peer-reviewed biannual English language journal focusing on archaeometallurgy, mining archaeology and archaeometry relating broadly to mining, production, trade, and conservation of metals and georesources. The goals of the journal are to explore human interaction with georesources in the past, technological and economic development due to the extraction and utilization of these resources, and the methods of preserving and documenting the material remains that testify to these interactions and developments.

A primary aim of the journal is to open communication among the fields of geosciences, mining archaeology and archaeometry to encourage cooperation in the study of ancient resource procurement and use. METALLA is forum where new analytical results can be presented and discussed, particularly regarding technical, technological, geochemical and provenance studies.
