and How It Was MadeCharcoal is the carbonized residue to wood that has been heated in the absence of air. It was used in smelting because it required less blast than other fuels, was more convenient to obtain, and reacted well with the ore. Wood, cut in four foot lengths, was loaded into the kilns through the lower door. First, dry material, then green was stacked from the walls inward as high as possible. Loading continued from a ramp through the opening in the back of the kiln.
