Archaeometallurgical studies should be aimed to a better comprehension of the socio-economic organization of ancient settlements.
Roman Milan is known as a lively and rich city, although little evidence for craftsmanship and production has been found so
far. Thus, a comparison between historical data and the results of the archaeological investigations is attempted here, in order
to understand what kind of activities was carried out here, and on which scale.
Blacksmithing and bronze-working are undoubtedly testified, as well as other activities which ask for a more deepened
study, such as zinc cementation and iron smelting, but also glass- and bone-working.
