Abstract

During the work of the International Merv Project (described in the 1997/98 issue of Archaeology International) evidence wasunexpectedly unearthed of a sophisticated method of making steel that was practised there over 1000 years ago. Investigation of the archaeometallurgical remains from Merv has now revealed how the process worked and how the medieval steel makers conserved and recycled the raw materials they used.
