This September, the Historical Metallurgy Society is visiting the Ruhr region in Germany. The highlights of the visit are:

  • The 20th century blast furnace at Duisburg re-invented as a recreational area with cinema, diving, climbing areas and much more. Guided tour of the furnace with torches in the evening.
  • Presentations on current research in Germany on historical metallurgy by some of the leading professionals in their fields. To be held in the old control room of the blast furnace.
  • Open-air museum at Hagen with working 18th century metalworking mills. Also, the last chance to see the experimental Iron Age domed iron smelting furnace, to be demolished shortly after our visit.
  • The German Mining Museum in Bochum
