Scientific investigation of copies, fakes and forgeries by P. T Craddock( )

"Scientific Investigation of Copies, Fakes and Forgeries is a comprehensive guide to the technical and scientific study of the authenticity of a wide range of antiquities and artworks. It is the first book to provide a full survey of the subject of forgery from a scientific basis, examining a wide range of materials and techniques." "The demand for copies, fakes and forgeries is driven by rising prices in an international marketplace. The book examines the available new technologies and ever more sophisticated forging techniques, looking at production and distribution of fraudulent artworks. The subject is exemplified by numerous internationally based case studies, some turning out not to be as conclusive as is sometimes believed." "The book is aimed at those who need to understand the available approaches to and methods of scientific and technical authentication, be they curator, collector, conservator or scientist." --Book Jacket

"The fabulous wealth of the Lydians, derived from the gold of the river Pactolus in which King Midas bathed, may be the stuff of legend, but the essence of the stories is firmly founded on fact. Lydia, in what is now western Turkey, enjoyed enormous prosperity during the first millennium BC, and in the late seventh century BC the world's first precious metal coinage was made there. The continuing Archaeological Exploration of Sardis has excavated the remains of a gold refinery at the site, dating from the sixth century BC at the very inception of bimetallic coinage."

Early Indian metallurgy : the production of lead, silver and zinc through three millennia in North West India by P. T Craddock( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most studies of ancient technology have hitherto been based on the civilisations of the Mediterranean and Middle East, especially those of Egypt, Greece and Rome. In this volume the extraordinarily well preserved remains at three major mining and metal production sites in the Aravalli Hills of Rajasthan (Agucha, Dariba and Zawar) were revealed. At these sites, by survey and archaeological excavation, the authors, studied the long-term development of mining and smelting activity over 3000 years. At Dariba and Agucha silver was mined by the Mauryan Empire on a colossal scale over 2,000 years ago. At Zawar the Mauryan mines seem to have produced mainly zinc oxide, but in the Medieval period zinc metal was produced by advanced processes of high temperature distillation, almost certainly the earliest commercial zinc production in the world. Here the laboratory processes described in the early Indian scientific works were developed into major industrial processes, the birth of chemical industry at least 500 years before similar developments began in Europe. The authors also analyse the decline and rebirth of extractive metallurgy in India
