Keywords:Archaeometallurgy, Forge, Mechanical properties, Microstructure, Technology
At the beginning of the 70th the archaeological artifacts of a roman village in Palencia were excavated. This village was known as La Olmeda and its mosaics and the luxury objects are attractive. The studies are focused on the characterization of the cowbell. This object was made with iron and bronze, in his hollow section and with iron in the handle and the clapper. The metallographic characterization of this piece using optical microscopy, SEM-EDX, XRD and hardness test gives information about different fabrication procedure and technological knowledge of the society.
