1. Casting a Late Bronze Age axe head (Booleybrien Hoard), using experimental archaeology methods during a workshop in Fermanagh: a charcoal pit furnace, LBA leather hand bellows and clay moulds. 500g of bronze are heated to 1,150C and then poured into the fired mould, made of clay, sand and dung. An earlier ‘horseshoe furnace’ is being set-up in the middle photo. Holger Lönze, 2013 www.holgerlonze.com/casting.shtml
