A chronicle in a trilogy of papers and lectures.

The BMetA (formerly the Birmingham Metallurgical Society) was formed over 100 years ago and for many years, lectures, papers and discussions were published in regular issues of its journal which was distributed to a wide membership.

Here you will find commentary and an anthology of lectures/papers selected from the journals to reflect the evolution of the subject of Metallurgy and the rise and fall of the associated industries in Birmingham. The collection is presented in three volumes.

The BMeta would like to place on record its gratitude extended to Ian Dillamore for the countless hours spent digitising, creating and editing these volumes.

Volume 1. The Metals and Alloys.

Volume II. Treatments, Secondary Processes and Equipment.

Volume III. Properties and Applications, Science, Policy, Philosophy
