Iron Smelt at Earth, Air Celtic Festival

Pulling the finished bloom!
 Standard 'Norse Short Shaft' furnace (clay/manure/sand) using roughly 28 KG 'DARC Dirt 3' ore analog to produce an estimated 8 kg soft, nicely dense iron bloom.


Watsons Home Hardware, 
370 Bayfield Rd, Goderich. 

Watson's donated all the charcoal required for this successful iron smelting demonstration at the Earth, Air Celtic Festival on August 11.

Great work by my 'Ancient Iron' students!
