The technological achievements that make contemporary society possible are the result of some ten thousand years of development of the intentional use of fire, yet there is surprisingly little information on the practice and importance of pyrotechnology. J.E. Rehder, an engineer with fifty years of experience in industrial research and pyrotechnology, offers a detailed examination of how fire and furnaces were used in antiquity - from the hardening of clay, to the smelting of iron ore, to the production of glass. The Mastery and Uses of Fire in Antiquity provides much-needed information for anyone interested in archaeology, anthropology, and pyrotechnology.
