Smelting in my backyard

After last Thursday's lecture on ancient metallurgy, at least one student was curious about why I had a used smelting furnace in my backyard. Here's an explanation (and if you are really curious you may find an earlier post in here somewhere--Sept. 2006?).

  1. Haha, yes! My curiosity is sated.

    Also, that is a really cool explanation as to why there was a forge in your backyard. I was expecting something along the lines of "we were putting in a fancy fence" or something. Definitely cooler than a fence.
