Introduction: A Mission to Be Fulfilled

Jianjun Mei

Editor-in-Chief



I am delighted to say a few words to mark the launch of Advances in Archaeomaterials (AIA), a new English-language journal dedicated to the promotion of research on the cross-disciplinary investigation of historical materials. Why is this journal a necessary addition to the several that already exist in the field of archaeological science, such as Archaeometry and Journal of Archaeological Science? To answer this question, some reflections from a historical perspective may be helpful.

AIA is sponsored by the University of Science and Technology Beijing (USTB), with the Institute for Cultural Heritage and History of Science & Technology (ICHHST) playing a key role in bringing it into being. Founded in 1974 and formerly known as the Archaeometallurgy Group and the Institute of Historical Metallurgy and Materials (IHMM), ICHHST has undergone many significant transformations over the past four decades, as evidenced by the growth of the staff and postgraduate student body, as well as the expansion of research fields, from the history of metallurgy to archaeological science, cultural and industrial heritage, conservation science, and science and technology studies. The development of the ICHHST has been shaped by its long-standing commitment to maintaining international academic links and exchanges, initiated by the late Professor Tsun Ko (Ke Jun), who, together with the late Professor Robert Maddin, established the International Conference on the Beginnings of the Use of Metals and Alloys (BUMA) in 1981. BUMA conferences have become a major international platform for scholars from all over the world to gather together every three or four years to share their most recent research on archaeometallurgy.

Professor Ko pioneered the idea of establishing an English-language academic journal to promote Chinese studies in archaeometallurgy internationally many years ago. When I returned to China from Britain to take up directorship of the IHMM in 2004, he asked me to do two things: organize the BUMA VI conference and explore the possibility of cooperating with our Japanese colleagues to replace the Bulletin of the Metals Museum, which had just ceased publication. BUMA VI was held in Beijing in September 2006, but establishing an English-language journal with a focus on archaeometallurgy proved harder to achieve at that time.

In 2016 the ICHHST established an annual bilingual (Chinese and English) symposium series titled Archaeomaterials Studies, which has proved to be a great success. Five symposia have now been organized, highlighting the emergence of a new generation of Chinese scholars working on ancient materials as well as the need for an English-language journal covering recent studies in archaeomaterials in China.

It was only after the success of the Archaeomaterials Studies Symposium in 2016 that the idea of a journal was revived, as the ICHHST considered it a major strategic part of its ambitious program of internationalization. Professor Qian Wei, director of the ICHHST, and his colleagues at the Institute, especially Dr. Brett Kaufman, who had just joined the ICHHST as a faculty member, subsequently held many discussions on the aims and scope of the planned journal and met with potential publishing partners. The breakthrough finally arrived when an agreement was signed between the ICHHST and KeAi Publishing in May 2020.

It will certainly take some time for the newborn AIA to become widely recognized as a credible avenue for publishing research on archaeomaterials, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank many colleagues and friends for their generous support and trust in joining our Editorial Board and offering their research manuscripts. I am especially grateful to Kaufman, now an assistant professor at the University of Illinois, for his hard work on overseeing production of this inaugural issue as managing editor. I am confident that with its roots in China and a focus on cutting-edge research, review, and synthesis, the AIA will develop its own special academic characteristics, stimulating and nurturing research on archaeomaterials in the years to come.
