Network of Archaeological and Historical Metalworking - NAHM
The Network of Archaeological and Historical Metalworking – NAHM was founded on 4 May 2011 in Berlin. Its remit is interdisciplinary and international. NAHM offers an innovative forum for research into the material culture of the metal ages, the prehistoric as well as the historic periods.
The impetus came from the realisation that we can barely keep track of the multitude of new results and the methodological possibilities available for research into metals today.
This requires closer collaboration between specialists in the humanities and the natural sciences, as well as with professionals dedicated to conservation and restoration. NAHM provides such an arena for exchange among the disciplines. It aims at promoting research of experts from different disciplines on an equal footing and wants to introduce the next generation of academics to these research topics.
The solid core of members of this network organises workshops twice a year in different locations. Colleagues are invited to take part in discussions on selected aspects of metal artisanry. The proceedings of these meetings are published.
