The Crucible is edited by Jack Cranfield, based at the University of Exeter, assisted by other HMS members. The Team produces our informal newsletter The Crucible that keeps HMS members up to date with notices, reviews and reports of relevant events and projects on archaeological and historical metallurgy.
