From Iron Ore to Iron Hoe: Smelting Iron in Africa
 

Very few African smiths have smelted iron from ore since cheap mass-produced imports and wrecked vehicles became common decades ago. A very detailed, high-quality, reasonably-priced video of every step in the process of smelting iron in a traditional clay furnace in Africa, from mining the ore, burning the charcoal, building the furnace, smelting the ore, forging the iron tools. It is fascinating to see the simple but efficient techniques African smiths once used.
