Held at West Dean College. The conference was the first time that so many experimenters will be reconstructing such a variety of processes in a single place.
Held in Cardiff joint with Historical Committee of the German Steel Institute to address the following themes.
- The South Wales iron and steel industry, particularly the development of rolled and engineering products
- The development of the steel industry in the UK and Europe post-1960
- The social history of the iron and steel industry
The ferrous industries were central to the origins of HMS in 1962-3, and fifty years later we returned to the historical heart of the English iron industry to review progress in research, conservation and interpretation since then.
