The Continuing Study of Damascus Steel: Bars from the Alwar Armory

Michael Notis, professor emeritus of materials science and engineering and director of the Archaeometallurgy Laboratory at Lehigh, was mentioned in an article about studies on Damascus steel. Over the last 40 years, there has been a discernible increase in the number of scholars who have focused their research on early industrial organizations, a field of study that has come to be known as Archaeotechnology. Archaeologists have conducted fieldwork geared to the study of ancient technologies in a cultural context and have drawn on the laboratory analyses developed by materials scientists as one portion of the interpretive program. Papers for this department are solicited and/or reviewed by Notis.
