Abstract

During the Roman period copper and its alloys, gold, silver, lead, tin and pewter, were all used to make a wide range of decorative and utilitarian objects. While some of these objects were made in other parts of the Roman Empire there is a growing body of evidence for production in Britian. This paper will first outline the processes used to turnboth newly smelted and recycled metals into objects, and will describe the archaeological finds which provide evidence for these processes. Assemblages of metalworking finds from across southern Britain will then be used as case studies to show how archaeological finds can be interpreted to give a broader pictue of the place of metalworking in Romano-British society.
