Viking Age Archaeology i. .has been added to your Basket. Richard Hall became interested in the Vikings as an undergraduate in Ireland, when he worked on the excavation of Viking-age Dublin and wrote a dissertation updating the catalogue of Viking material from Ireland. His doctoral thesis concerned the towns of the English Danelaw, a topic which required a study of museum collections, excavations and documentary sources for the Viking campaigns and settlement.

This book examines the distribution of these sites and their geological background.

The knowledge of metallurgy, first developed in the Near East, spread to most parts of Europe by 2000 BC. The birth of this new technology coincided with a pivotal moment in the human story, a time of great social and economic change which we call the bronze age. Flourishing metal industries emerged in Britain and Ireland, the success of which owed much to the ability to secure reliable supplies of copper and tin. Recent research has uncovered several locations where bronze age copper mines have survived the destructive reworking of recent centuries. This book examines the distribution of these sites and their geological background. All aspects of early mining technology are covered, from the initial discovery of copper minerals to their extraction and concentration using primitive techniques. This mining was a considerable technological achievement, as was the ability to convert the mineral ores to metal by smelting at high temperatures. The daily life of these miners, the dangers they faced, their settlement background and ritual beliefs are also considered. Many of these miners made an important contribution to trade during the bronze age. This book contains recent research on the most important sites, some of which can be visited by the public today, and provides a useful introduction to a fascinating aspect of bronze age life.
