Saxon forge and smelting

Postby Owen Bush » Sun Nov 22, 2009 11:49 am

Hi I am new to the reinacting world and am just in the process of joining Regia .
I would like to set up a saxon forge for demonstrating sword and seax making on .I am also very interested in smelting in a saxon style .
Does anybody know of any information on saxon forge set ups and or smelting ?
To add I am a very experienced smith (16 years experience, full time) and make my own complex patternwelded blades and have smelted steel several times in a japanese style tatare .
I have found information on danish and Swedish smelting from an experimental archeology point of view ,I am looking for a Saxon equivalent .
any info on anvil shape ,forge type and smelting would be most appreciated .
All the best Owen
