Tylecote's notebooks

In 2008, the Historical Metallurgy Society acquired the papers of Professor Tylecote. These have been catalogued by the HMS and are archived in the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust. The physical copies of the papers can be consulted by prior arrangement with the librarian.

The notebooks include many notes on the metallurgical samples catalogued in this website, alongside notes on sites and museums visited by Tylecote, on his smelting experiments and on conferences he attended. These have been digitised by the RLAHA in 2013. Digitised copies of the relevant notebooks can be viewed by clicking on the links below (files named Tyl_notebook_1 to 102). The copyright for these copies lies with the HMS.

The archive also includes three typewritten indexes detailing the contents of the notebooks. These can also be viewed below (files named Tyl_index_103 to 105).

Finally, Tylecote wrote a masterlist of the mounts in his collection. At the back of this handwritten book, there is also an alphabetical index giving mount numbers for a list of sites and projects. This list is kept at the RLAHA in Oxford and a digital copy is available below (file name Tyl_masterlist_and_index).

NB: The pencil notes might be difficult to read on certain screens. If this is the case, dropping the brightness of the screen should make it better.
