Technology of Iron: Choices and Innovation
2009 (English)In: Materials and Manufacturing Processes, ISSN 1042-6914, E-ISSN 1532-2475, Vol. 24, no 9, 981-986 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This article deals with the concept of technological change and choices and how new techniques are rejected or accepted in different socioeconomic and power systems. If we are to understand and deal with technological changes, we need to investigate their causes and relations to geographical area and power systems both now and in the past. We have chosen to study the two almost completely different types of societies, Sweden and Greece, in order to understand some of the mechanisms behind the changes in technology and techniques. Our aim is to participate in widening the scope of archaeometallurgy, since traditionally we have focused on empirical analysis of material culture rather than theory building.
