Dunshammar is a very old place for producing iron. It is dated from 300 - 700 BC. According coal 14 method which was used 1970. It is about a very simple way to produce iron. But before you can imagine this you have driven 10 km from Virsbo and turned at a sign which the picture shows. You follow a grained road for about 5 km into the forest. It is fully able to drive in slow motion. At last the road turns to the right after a small forest road about 100 m and you reach the picture with our mopeds. Now you have to take off your clothes because it is supposed that you are going to walk among all iron places.

The iron was got from the nearby lake Åmäningen.
The ore which was fetched from to bottom o the lake, was first rusted in a cavity in the ground in order to get rid of most contaminations. Then it was moved to the blower oven. Here they reached with a simple pair of bellows 1000-1100°C. Because of the low temperature they got iron which was forgeable. At the geological investigation which was done at this place there is presumed that about 6-7 tons of iron produced at this here. The picture from the pair of bellows show how simple it was done with a small channel form the bellow. Note that this place had no water power and all work was done by hand. Note also that we are in the years around iron age. Around many creeks in lake Åmänningen this kind of place are found.

The iron which was brought up from lake bottom was very rich of iron oxid about 60 %. This is a marvelous figure. On the other hand the iron had bad quality, but what the matter, it was better than tools made of wood.
