Early Iron Experimental Group
The Early Iron Experimental Group
- is a collection of working metalsmiths, historians and archaeologists. Our interest is using the methods of experimental archaeology to develop working skills related to the smelting of iron ores to workable metal using historic techniques.

As with other such specialized discussions, we ask that members limit their postings to our topic. Please feel free to share your discoveries, observations and research! In the photos and files area is a growing collection of articles and images of our individual smelts.

Active researchers in the archaeology of iron and bloomery iron smelting are invited to join our discussions.
Please mail early.iron@gmail.com to request membership
