It is primarily intended for use to metal conservators. Engineers, metal conservation scientists, sculptures and student striving to acquire some background and perspective on this subject. Conservation of the iron artifacts is one of the major challenges of our time for metal conservators. With the advancement of science and technology several new materials have come out time to time. However a random survey indicates that there is hardly a book, which covers from history of iron to philosophy and conservation of iron including technique of casting deterioration and metallographic studies for measurement of types and level of decay of metals.
This book is expected to be useful not only for the University Students technologists and practicing conservators, metal sculptures, artists and metallurgists but also for all those who are entrusted with the responsibilities for conserving the iron and iron artifacts.

This book is deals extensively a very important subject "Iron artifacts: History, Metallurgy, Corrosion and Conservation". It has been written mainly for metal conservators, engineers, metal conservation scientists, sculptors and students striving to acquire some background and perspective on this subject. Particularly emphasis have been given on describing the history of iron on global perspective, raw materials including nature of ferrous materials and manufacturing process of iron, deterioration and corrosion and conservation of iron artifacts. The conservation of the iron is one of the major challenges of our time and has become a share responsibility nationally as well as internationally. With the advancement of science and technology several new materials and methods have been developed to safeguard iron and its iron antiquities. Consequently a number of books dealing with conservation of specific type of materials have come out time to time. However, a random survey indicates that there is hardly a book which covers from history of iron to philosophy and conservation of iron including techniques of casting, deterioration and metallographic studies for measurement of types and level of decay of metals.
