Conference series "Anatolian Metal"

Tagungsreihe Anatolian Metal

Since 1998 the Deutsches Bergbau-Museum Bochum has regularly organized the symposium series “Anatolian Metal”. In this series, findings from the museum’s research in Anatolia and neighbouring countries are presented to other scholars in the field.


This series has now become a firm fixture and will be continued in the years to come. The next conference is to be held at the end of 2013, and the following one in 2016. The previous conferences have been funded by the Gerda Henkel Foundation and the Fritz Thyssen Foundation, and it is anticipated that this will continue.
