This publication seeks to speak to either an international and native viewers, the main attributes of pre-industrial African metallurgy equivalent to technological edition throughout house and time, tools of mining and extractive metallurgy and the fabrication of steel objects. those procedures have been transformative in a actual and metaphoric experience, which made them overall social evidence. as the construction and use of metals used to be an accretion of varied different types of perform, a chaine operatoire conceptual and theoretical framework that at the same time considers the embedded technological and anthropological elements was once used.
The publication specializes in Africa’s diverse areas as approximately outlined via cultural geography. at the one hand there's North Africa, Egypt, the Egyptian Sudan, and the Horn of Africa which percentage cultural inheritances with the center East and at the different is Africa south of the Sahara and the Sudan which regardless of interacting with the previous is remarkably diverse when it comes to technological perform. for instance, not just is the timing of metallurgy diversified yet so is the infrastructure for operating metals and the linked symbolic and sociological elements. The cultural valuation of metals and the social positions of steel employees have been assorted too even supposing there's facts of a few values move and multi-directional technological pass borrowing. The multitude of variations linked to metals creation and use amply demonstrates that metals participated within the creation and replica of society.
Despite large temporal and spatial variations there are such a lot of universal components among African metallurgy and that of alternative areas of the area. for instance, the position of magic and formality in steel operating is nearly common be it in Bolivia, Nepal, Malawi, Timna, Togo or Zimbabwe. equally, recommendations of mining have been limited through the underlying geology yet this could no longer by any means recommend that Africa’s metallurgy used to be spinoff or that the continent had no initiative. quite it demonstrates that once faced with comparable demanding situations, humanity in several areas of the realm answered to exact demanding situations in predictable methods mediated as mediated by means of the present cultural context.
The luck of using historic and ethnographic information in knowing edition and improvisation in African metallurgical practices flags the capability software of those resources in Asia, Latin the United States and Europe. a few nuance is besides the fact that wanted since it is just naïve to imagine that every little thing depicted within the historical past or ethnography has a parallel long ago and vice versa. fairly, the confluence of archaeology, heritage and ethnography turns into a pedestal for discussion among varied resources, matters and ideas that's very important for broadening our wisdom of worldwide different types of metallurgical perform.

Voor dit boek reisde Clerinx onder andere naar Drenthe, de Belgische Ardennen, Duitsland, Zweden, Ierland, Spanje, Bretagne en natuurlijk Engeland en Schotland. Hij vertelt wat er aan megalithische monumenten te zien is, en voor de Benelux geeft hij zelfs specific aan waar welk monument te vinden is.
Onder het motto ‘nadenken is niet verboden’ gaat Clerinx verder na wat de bedoeling en het nut van al die monumenten used to be. Daartoe combineert hij de archeologische gegevens met inzichten uit de antropologie, zonder de wetenschap ooit geweld aan te doen. Clerinx legt zelfs uit hoe Stonehenge aan de foundation lag van een officieel erkende godsdienst: de religie van de moderne druïden.
