"Researchers have deciphered enigmatic recipes for metal-making contained in an ancient Chinese text, revealing unexpected complexity in the art at the time.
Six chemical formulas are given in a Chinese text from 300BC known as the Kaogong ji. The manuscript, known as The World’s Oldest Encyclopedia of Technologies, forms part of a detailed archive of early imperial rule, which archeologists have been trying to decode since the 1920s."
Great news! The journal Advances in Archaeomaterials is now indexed in the DOAJ! The journal publishes synthesis of recent advances in the field as well as new original research and translations of articles originally published in languages other than English to make them available to a wider audience. Special issues are also considered.
