Abstract

Abstract: Archaeometallurgical investigations of Imperial Roman lead and silver production near the village of Stojnik, near Mt. Kosmaj (some 30 km south of Belgrade), represented a part of the programme of excavations from 1983-1988 by a joint Yugoslav-American team. Metallurgical evidence of production near the military fort (castellum) and surrounding civilian settlement was investigated. Technical studies included excavated samples of smelting slag and lead metal. The earliest samples were dated on numismatic and ceramic evidence to the mid-second century. Production intensified around the civilian settlement through to the third and fourth centuries. Iron-rich slag compositions for lead smelting were consistent. Silver recovery by cupellation was thorough.
