TRADITIONAL IRON SMELTING

Hillman, Fri 28th June 18:00 - 18:30 (30 mins)

Traditional iron smelting has been practised since separating iron and ore was first discovered more than 3,000 years ago. It is still carried out even to this day in some remote parts of the world. Here, in the Chalke Valley, we will attempt this ancient and still unperfected process.
