Iron Smelting

Charge Hand

I spent this afternoon at the Iron Age iron smelt held by Roger Doonan and the MSc in Experimental Archaeology at Heeley City Farm. You can see a gallery of photographs from the smelt. The gallery follows the smelting process on the day from start to finish, beginning with ore crushing and ending with removing the iron bloom.
