An Ancient Jewellery Technology seminar 'package' has just been
announced for museums and conservation schools worldwide.

It includes:

    *   A two-day seminar for up to 12 people on the development of
        Old World jewellery technology. The chronological range can
        be adapted, but usually covers ancient Old World and
        medieval (European and  Islamic), but can extend to European
        Renaissance and 17th-19th century jewellery if desired.
        Seminars include forgeries and forgery detection.

    *   A one-hour 'public' evening or afternoon lecture on a
        jewellery history topic aimed at a more general audience.

    *   One day 'on hand' informally to help curators, conservators
        or students with projects or to discuss objects.

The seminars include lectures using dynamic 3-D projection,
specially printed hand-outs with glossaries, bibliographies and
summaries, and hands-on examination with mini-projects for
participants using our teaching collection of genuine ancient gold
components. Objects from your own collections can be incorporated if
