This book looks at iron- and steel-working in Iran, from pre-Islamic times to the present day. The authors unify art-historical and scientific aspects of steel-making and provide a wide-ranging survey of the development of the technologies and trades involved. Nearly 400 objects are cataloged and illustrated, and over 70 are subjected to metallurgical analysis.
