The book deals with the ancient exploitation and production of copper, exemplified by the mining district of Faynan, Jordan. It is an interdisciplinary study that comprises (mining-) archaeological and scientific aspects. The development of organizational patterns and technological improvements of mining and smelting through the ages (5th millennium BC to Roman Byzantine period), in a specific mining region, is discussed.

Recensioner i media

From the reviews: "This book treats a much wider range of subjects than what one would expect from the title. ... The text is easy and pleasantly written with a surprisingly wide multidisciplinary background of knowledge and modern analytical techniques. ... The book is superbly produced, with high-quality illustrations, some in colour, and has an enormous amount of data over the broad spectrum of geology-mineralogy-metallurgy-archeology. It is very stimulating reading beyond the usual feed of economic geologists, and recalls the deep roots of our business." (Bernd Lehmann, Economic Geology, Vol. 103 (2), 2008) Aus den Resensionen: "Das Buch ... mit dem anspruchsvollen Titel ... koennte den Eindruck erwecken, die immer wieder diskutierten Fragen des Wann und Wie seien nun eindeutig und endgultig beantwortet. Der Autor, ein erfahrener Mineraloge, ist viel ... sachkundig, ... Seine Publikation ist vielmehr ein wichtiger Beitrag zum Allgemeinthema 'Fruhes Kupfer'. ... Die Gliederung des Buchinhalts folgt einer logischen Sequenz. ... Er hat aus der fulle der analytischen und verfahrenstechnischen Details und Erkenntnisse bleibende kulturgeschichtliche Folgerungen gezogen, die fur Archaologen ... gleichermassen informativ und wegweisend sind, wie fur Archaometallurgen." (Prof. Dr. Hans-Gert Bachmann, in: Der Anschnitt, 2009, Vol. 61, Issue 4, S. 284 ff.)
