Amazing.
We forget how the history and evolution of the technology of the furnace runs
side by side with the history and evolution of weapons, swords, pottery, glassware,
steel, alloys and just the
simply historic significance of something as simple as "bellows".
This is an amazing book chock full of serious research and ahead of it's time.
It really got my mind thinking. =)
